So I am kind of a vampire!!!!!

One of the hardest thing for me to overcome when we first got here is the imminent approach of the sunshine in the morning! It is like an alarm clock! Now I know that it is certainly made more intense by the fact that we have two sunroofs above our beds but still we saw this type of sun in Seattle roughly two weeks out of the year! So I was prepared I invested in one of those ridiculous eye masks so that the sun would not win and sleep would prevail!!!! So Nathaniel came in the first week we lived in our new home and he would say "I love your room mommy those windows above your bed are so cool!" quickly followed by "Your eye mask is so cool I want one when I grow up!" So one of the days that we were setting up the house Nathan said he was tired and he was going to take a nap. (don't you just love when your kids actually volunteer for nap time! Music to my ears!) So after about an hour I went upstairs and looked in his room he wasn't there! Then I looked in my room and there he was but wait what was that on his face! I nearly died he had my sleep mask on and he was out! After nap time he came downstairs all smiles and told me that my sleep mask was awesome!
