We were waiting for Frances’s school recital to begin last night, and Frances was running all through the auditorium to get out some energy.
Frances has the most energy of any child I’ve ever met: she doesn’t seem to experience sleepiness. (This will come in handy at university if she’s staying up all night to finish essays.)
I do joke about it sometimes because it’s good not to take things too seriously (and we make sure she gets enough restorative sleep.)
There was only one other parent waiting with us before the recital. I’m quite comfortable with this mother as we’ve both had children at the school for some time and she really likes Frances. She’s got a great sense of humour as well as very active kids, and the following exchange occurred as Frances ran around.
Other Parent: Frances is still very active, isn’t she?
Me: Yes…but I saw her yawn once. 🙂
She actually did yawn this past autumn, in the car, for the first time that either Pink Cup Dad or I could remember.
It’s just who Frances is and the way things are. She may experience being tired more as she ages, but who knows? For now, she’s our very sweet bundle of energy.
