Crazy kids

Sunday, October 04, 2015

It's 2:30 am and I need to be awake for at least another hour. I'm waiting for visitors - the kid is on her school's varsity soccer team, and the seniors are "kidnapping" the younger teammates at ~3:30 am for hijinks and whatever. The instructions to the parents are to a) unlock the front door and b) leave instructions on where to find our kid's bedroom. There is no way in heck that a worrier like myself can possibly sleep with the front door unlocked, so instead I have a sign on our door asking the seniors to knock, and I will let them in and direct them to our kid's bedroom.

Crazy kids.

Tonight the kid's team battled the team from the next city to a scoreless tie. It was a very physical game and I'm glad no one was hurt. She has another game on Monday, then another one on Wednesday, then another one three days later ... and 2 hour practices on the days in between. Poor kid is even more tired than I am. She was up until a few minutes ago working on homework. If she's lucky she'll sleep for an hour before being rudely woken up for her "kidnapping."

Crazy kids.

    Beyond the call of duty!! I don't think I would have had the stamina for that wait. Where do kids get all that energy? Whew! Hope your daughter enjoyed being "kidnapped." I'm assuming it was arranged to be a surprise? Hope it was a fun and not scary surprise for her.

    AND I hope you can catch up on your sleep tonight, and not re-catch that cold! Take care, Bemused!

    You're such a good sport!
    That would not have happened at my house.
    You're awesome with your kids!

    I'm so far away from this age with my kids, that the thought is boggling. I imagine when the day comes, I'll be done my the same wide eyed wait. Hope you can catch up on sleep!
