Poor Samuel has been crushed with homework for the past week. High school is tougher than middle school. Last night at 11pm he was still working, and he just wanted to go to bed and be done with it.
So we turned off the bedroom light, got under the covers and read a children's book by flashlight, just like the old days.
Then we lay in bed--all four of us--and watched an episode of "Theodore Tugboat" on the iPad.
It was like he was four years old again--but with YouTube, an iPad, and a lot less room in the bed.
