School officially starts tomorrow for Christian so things are a bit hectic around here. Fortunately mom made dinner so there was one less thing to worry about. I have not figured out how to feed and bathe La Luz in time for her to make it to bed at a decent hour. She is fast becoming the kids I was oddly curious about in school - the ones with no bedtimes, the ones who could pick out and make their own dinners, the ones who were allowed to skip baths if they preferred, the ones whose uniforms were never ironed, the ones without rules. I think I will be able to establish a good, healthy routine. I have in mind what I want for La Luz - evening walks with Christian and Loki, dinner together at a table with each food group represented, baths every night at 7:30, followed by a book or two and bed. La Luz gets a slight variation of that theme, but it is the variations that concern me. For example, at 8:30 tonight when she should have been asleep and dreaming, we were busy working on her 'faces' and practicing blinking and winking:
Can you blame me for wanting to keep her up past a reasonable bedtime?
