Dad and I had a disagreement.

Dad thought it would be fine to begin our outing for household supplies at 8pm. I said otherwise.

It brings up the fact that our lifestyle is changing. We can't just blow off the day doing stuff we want to do and do the grown up stuff late at night.

Now 8pm is not late. I'm not 80 yet. However, 8pm is late for household shopping, electronic shopping, laundry, storage cleanup and christmas decorations to be taken care of before it's too late and your mom is too sleepy and tired to stay up.

Bean, your mom can sleep anytime and anywhere. It doesn't matter how many hours I've slept before, I can always sleep. This is before you came down to earth.

Since you've arrived and moved into Casa de Mama, your mom's body gets pretty tired earlier and earlier. By 11pm, Mr. Sandman starts creeping in. As your dad once said, "Sleep will always win. It doesn't matter if someone had a gun to your head and told you not to sleep. Sleep will always win."

In fact, the last few days have been the same pattern. Sleepiness sets in at 11pm. Passed out by midnight/12:30am. Wake up at 3:30am to pee. Sleep. Wake up at 6:30am to pee. Sleep. Wake up at 7am.
