Jenny in Florida Posted August 5, 2008 Share Posted August 5, 2008 It's just about 9:40 p.m. My 10-year-old son is reading in bed. My 13-year-old daughter is bouncing off the walls showing--and simultaneously narrating--the dance routine she and the rest of the cast worked on during today's rehearsal. It's a pretty typical evening for us. My son usually heads off to bed for reading time sometime between 8:30 and 9:00 and gets 30-45 minutes to read, depending on how well behaved he's been and how early he needs to be up in the morning. When my daughter is home, she stays up about as late as we do, noodling around on the computer or hanging out with us either talking or watching something on DVD. (We're working our way through Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel these days.) While I've been typing this, though, my daughter has decided to head off to bed. She had a full-day show rehearsal today and has another tomorrow. They're making them dance, and she is not a dancer. So, it's tiring for her. She'll probably read for an hour or so.
