Why is it, on the night you stay up an extra hour late to watch two DVR’d episodes of Torchwood, that:

1. Your sopping wet body wakes you at 2 or 3? I was so wet I thought I’d actually wet the bed! Thankfully, NO. And I wouldn’t have told you even if I had, but I didn’t so you can believe me.

2. Once awake your bladder demands attention, and you actually pay it attention (something you never do)?

3. It takes you a LONG time to get back to sleep?

4. At 5:30 in the morning you hear the pitter pat of little feet and the slamming (why, oh, why must they slam??) of the bathroom door. The flushing. And then “Mommy, I had a bad dream” Your alarm will go off at 6:30, so you pat her a bit and send her to snuggle with her sister. Because I’m a selfish wretch when I’m tired.

Now, everyone knows that if it had only been ONE episode of Torchwood and bedtime had been regular, all of this would not have happened.
