This evening before he was heading off to bed, Jason was talking to me about all sorts of things (mostly about the Stargate Atlantis episode we watched this evening with a storyline that really fascinated him - they found out that the online game they had been playing actually controlled real people on a real world). Normally, I try to give him my attention, but I was really tired and he was just talking on and on and I just could not find it in me.

I apologized to him and said that I really was just too tired to follow everything that he was saying. He said that was fine, it did not really matter if I was listening…and continued right on talking…

This is what happens when you combine a “morning person” mom with a “night owl” kid (who likes to process things by talking).

I think it is time for bed…
