New Sleep Record - 10:42!

Like an adolescent with a raging HPG Axis our sleepy head woke at 10:25 a.m. He stayed in bed another 17 minutes talking to himself. Was it a growth spurt? Premature puberty?
No. Last night the bloody smoke detectors rebelled; "Low battery," and "BEEP, BEEP, BEEP!" all night. Dad made a 4:15 a.m. run to Walmart for batteries. Jack, who had crawled in bed with us, was having a great time. Luke, not so much. As Mom and Dad interrogated the traitorous smoke detectors with a flashlight Jack giggled and repeated, "I like watching you guys work." We, on the other hand, like sleep.
Someone had energy in the morning. Huff...Zzzzz.
