- Friday morning (school day)—Short and Tall choose to sleep in until 8 AM (bus comes at 8:15); normal bedtime of 7:30 PM.
- Saturday morning (no commitments other than soccer game midday)—boys wake up at 6 AM bright-eyed and bushy-tailed ready to watch cartoons; normal bedtime of 7:30 PM.
- Sunday morning—once again, they’re wide awake at 5:30 AM to watch more cartoons; bedtime is 7:30 PM.
- Monday morning (school day)—boys sleep in till I am forced to wake them up at 8 AM; bed at (you guessed it!) 7:30 PM.
