Summer Sleep: what time to bed?
One of the most delicious things of the summer is sun lighting our way well into the 9 o'clock hour. It's light until late, giving us time to lallygag, saunter, and generally play around outside until almost 10 o'clock. And then I hear my husband telling the kids: "Get into bed! It's 9 o'clock; let's get to bed early tonight!"
Uh: 9 o'clock is early? Under normal circumstances, during the school year, in the heart of the autumn and winter, bedtimes in our household are in the 7 to 8 o'clock range. Under summer circumstances of concerts in the park and long-lasting barbecues, bedtimes drool into the 9 to 10 o'clock range. That's a two-hour difference!
Well: how about you all? How much later are bedtimes, now that Mister Sun, Sun, Mister Golden Sun is out until almost the double-digit evening hours?
