late starters

For as much as Rhiannon and I have traveled since we've been married and as much as our travels have often involved leaving at unholy hours of the morning, you'd think that we would learn to not pack so late into the night beforehand. Especially with a baby, right?  I mean, no one would leave everything until the last minute when a baby is involved, because that's just asking for trouble. Apparently, we not only like to have trouble over for dinner, we hand it the keys to the house as well.  Hey, we might just make it to bed before midnight if we're lucky.

I expect to hear Brooklynn waking up in about three hours. Why didn't she help? I was always under the impression that kids were supposed to do chores to pitch in.
