Monday morning. 6:45 a.m. Alarm goes off. I hit snooze and roll over towards Violet:

me: I’m very jealous that you get to fall back to sleep after I get up.

V: I don’t fall back asleep.

me: Oh please. I come back in here after my shower and you’re sound asleep.

V: No I’m not. I’m just lying here.

me: Doing what?

V: Thinking.

me: With your eyes closed?

V: Yep.

me: Well, I’m going to think with my eyes closed earlier tonight. I’m tired.
