Party Animals

Its 4:15PM and we've only just woken up. That was some party!!

In the old days, that kind of wake up time would have been caused by dinner out with friends, followed by a week's worth of exercise at a dance party, and ending with an extremely late supper (or early breakfast) at 2AM.

These days, its because we went to a 1st Birthday Party at 11AM. It was our little friend, Kaeden's, party. And it was just a 5 minute walk away.

It was fun for us to meet and talk to some new people. I was a little worried that Aaron might decide to act out but he was fine. Apart from some sharing issues, he was good. Come to think of it, all the children were well behaved. There were no fights or tantrums. Not even much running around. Maybe Spongebob being played on the TV had something to do with it. OK, I get that its not necessarily a good thing but it was suitable for today's party. The children were all of various ages so it would have been difficult to arrange games.

So what has all that got to do with us waking up at 4:15PM? After the 5 min walk home, putting Aaron down for his very overdue nap and cleaning up the house, the heat and humidity was just too much to handle. And once you fall asleep in that kind of heat, it makes your groggy and its impossible to wake up from.

Now that our schedule is all wrong, we're going to explore Palembang by night. Not something we usually get to do because Aaron is always in bed by 7:30pm. And that is definitely not happening tonight.
