A Birthday Story for your enjoyment.

9 year old came in this morning a little after 3am saying she couldn’t get back to sleep.

“Back” to sleep… when did you wake up and why?

Well apparently at 2 am (or thereabouts) 11 year old had woken up (very excited about very recently turning 11), assumed it was morning, got dressed, shoes included and hair done- a feat accomplished in the middle of the night in a matter of minutes, but which in a normal morning routine takes numbers of hours and prodding.

Once dressed and having woken 9 year old up, she realised the time, and the error. 9 year old, we think at this point, attempted to return to sleep.

Around this time, an altogether usual occurrence, 3 year old woke up – she is wont to do this from time to time (we think she sleep walks but how can you ever know for sure?)

Anyway, 11 year old took it upon herself to supervise 3 year old. At 3:30 am, after we had understood the bones of 9 year olds take, we found 11 year old and 3 year old on the lounge cuddling and watching a video.

Everyone quietly returned to bed.

6 year old -our best sleeper- had not stirred.

This is how she wanted to be photographed today.
