Pulling All-Nighters

Saturday, Curtis pulled an all-nighter. He was a chaperon for X-Night, where students get to spend the night at the school, eat junk food, watch movies, and play massive amounts of video games. They had two rooms of networked Halo 3 competitions, two Rock Band setups, several Guitar Hero 3, a couple of Wiis, and several other game systems. Curtis took comfy clothes, his toothbrush, and a selection of his favorite no-caffeine energy drink. Being a chaperon for this kind of event was not as fun as he thought it would be (teenaged boys are DISGUSTING to clean up after), but he did get to eat lots of pizza and hang out with the kids.

Sunday, I pulled a near all-nighter. It's been very windy (and dusty) around here and Thomas had a stuffy nose. When he laid down, he felt like he was drowning in his own snot and would wake up and wail. So I spent most of the night rocking, bouncing, patting, comforting, nursing, and hoping that THIS time, he'd stay asleep more than a half hour. He seems better now; he's been sleeping since 7:30am. But I think it's safe to say that Curtis's all-nighter was way more fun than mine.
