Bedtime Denial

I think for as long as I can remember I have suffered from what I like to call 'bedtime denial' (BD for short). BD is usually most prevalent in young children and school-age kids. Kids usually scream and cry when they don't want to go to bed or they get really sweet to you.

But can it still manifest in adults? Yes! You know what I am talking about. You look at the clock and you say to yourself "Man it's late, I have to get up and go to work in the morning, I really should go to bed, I know I'll be dead when the alarm starts going off". Then you proceed to find many other things to do because you don't want to go to bed.

I thought to perhaps one day I'd grow out of it. Nope, still have it, hence the blogpost about it at 11:50 pm. :)

Anyone else suffer from bedtime denial?

Chad does!!! I do sometimes too. Evenings are the best relax, no stress time for us so it is hard to give it up and go to bed and then start a new day.
