The Price of Sleep

Friday, June 14th, 2013

girl with open handBoth of our kids had recently taking to coming into our bed in the middle of the night. To stop this, I told them that they would owe us a dollar ever night they came into our beds. A few nights later, my husband was snoring so loudly that I snuck into my daughter’s bed to get some sleep. When I woke up, my daughter promptly said, “Good morning!” Then she held out her hand and said, “You owe me a dollar.”
