When Pu drove us to our hotel, he laughed and warned us about magical numbers. In his home, 4 is a magical number…as in 4 p.m. and 4 a.m.. We met a very nice family the other night whose magical number is 3. Their kids start dozing around 3 p.m. and even after bedtime routine, they awaken at 3 a.m..
In our home the magical number falls in between 3 and 4. As in, one by one the kids have fallen asleep between 3 and 4 p.m. and after an hour of coaxing, shaking and threatening just to awaken them (I know, I’m a mean mom) and forcing them to stay awake until 8 or 9 p.m., they still magically awaken between 3 and 4 a.m.
Except for the other night. The magical number was 2:38 a.m….
Thank you 15-hour time change.
