Inside the Head of a Night Owl

I'm no cartoonist. Actually, that's an understatement. 

Once when he was a toddler, my son asked me to draw a train for him and what I drew was so bad he started crying and wailing: "That's not a train! That's a pig car!"

Nevertheless, I know that not everyone out there is a night owl like me so I wanted to give them a little glimpse into what we're thinking. Every single night.

Haha my hubby is yelling at me at 10pm to come up! I would stay up too. However now I'm suffering from a bit of insomnia so I wish I was in bed by 9.30! Hope you not too tired today xx #theteuthabout

Haha love this not too shabby on the cartoon front at all. I am the opposite of a night owl so now I finally understand what is going on in your heads!

Truth! I particularly like the 1:30am picture, I've been there too many times :)

Bahaha, love this!

Jenny said...

Haha "great, now I'm hungry." That's me as soon as I lay down in bed, especially when the next day is fast Sunday.

You're a better artist than me. I drew a river one time on the board while teaching the 9 year olds in primary. Someone asked why there was bacon on the board.

Jenny Evans said...

That's pretty much our life. It's not pretty.

Jenny Evans said...

Hey I can see the similarities, and the waves looking like fat streaks... I'll never look at a river the same way again!

Jenny Evans said...

Sadly, so have I.

I can indeed relate, although recently I have been (almost) managing the 10pm thing. It took complete exhaustion to get me doing it though :) #sharewithme

Oh manzo, this is MY life the minute I became a blogger! Jenny, you crack me up and hit it spot on. Thanks for linking up to Wonderful Wed. Blog Hop. I featured you on my FB page and can't wait to see what you bring - hopefully humorous again soon, LOVE THIS! Carrie, A Mother's Shadow

If you're not a cartoonist, then what am I ?? :D My sketches are terrible :)))

Jenny Evans said...

Has your drawing ever made one of your kids cry?? If not, you're doing better than I am.

Jenny Evans said...

My life as far back as when I was a teenager! I wish I could blame it all on blogging. Now I just have more excuses to stay up late.

Jenny Evans said...

I hope you keep it up! For a period of a few months I really did get in the habit and was in bed at 10 almost every night, and then Phillip went on a business trip and it was immediately back to 2am for me... I have no self-discipline!

I would say you nailed it exactly - speaking from one night owl to another. Thanks for comic strip.. I'd say you've come a long way from the pig car days :) Great drawings! Stopping by from Faith Filled Friday

I don't think my children will ever let me move on, but thanks for the vote of confidence!

HaHa! I SO know this! I know this when it's more than just bedtime, I know it practically all the time. It's worse at night though. I try not to really 'work' at night much because it's almost never ending lol :)

Jenny Evans said...

It's pretty dangerous to start working at night, because I'll never be "done." So in all likelihood, I'll never go to bed, either!

Let's Talk Mommy said...

This is so ME every night. I am awful. Night time is the only time I have to get things done while my tots sleep so it's late ones for me. I am always that way about 1:30 am I finally get up to go to bed and then feel hungry. hahahah Can relate so much. Thank you ever so much for linking up to Share With Me #sharewithme

I am trying to be a reformed night owl. If I get in bed by midnight, I'm early!

Jenny Evans said...

I used to be that way, but I don't think in the recent past I've stayed up past 11:30 as often. Still just as tired though, due to being pregnant and having to get kids up for school in the morning!

Unknown said...

I have always been in the habit of going to bed with my husband at a reasonalble time, but sometimes I think I should stay up and get something accomplished.

Jenny Evans said...

I wish I could do that! Phillip often stays up too late waiting for me... or sometimes we go to bed at a decent hour but then I think of "just one thing" I have to write down or do, so I get up and before I know it 3 hours have passed. He's sound asleep so he has no idea, don't tell him!
