Up All Night

Follow-Up Note to Self:
  • The New Year's Day that follows Christmas on a Sunday will also fall on Sunday. So much for Promiseland--- welcome to Zombieland.
  • Kids who nap away the first afternoon of the New Year may be up well after bedtime. In fact, post-nap wakefulness can lead to parental interference with teenage technology use at 2:00 a.m. despite reiteration of the expectations that texting and facebook cease at an earlier hour.
Note to Teenage Daughter:
  • Causing your mother to be fully awake in the wee hours for something other than illness, blood, fire, or flood is likely to end badly.
  • Texting a lengthy goodnight to the swoon-inspiring boy after being apprehended out of compliance with household expectations will not improve your mother's mood.
