The Scene: After a long day of playing in the snow, it has just been discovered that Kyler is the second victim of the chicken pox invasion. He has spots covering his whole body and is running a low-grade fever. Mom and Dad are also fatigued to the point of exhaustion.
Me: Almost time for bed!
Kyler: Mo-o-om, I don't have school tomorrow. . .Please let me stay up late!
Me: OK, you can stay up until 9:00, but it's already 8:30.
Kyler: YES!! [fist pumping]
The actual time:
Don't judge us.
