It's generally considered naughty around these here parts to be playing an electronic device without a timer on ("30 minutes and you're done for the day" is the rule. And if I catch you playing without a timer set, I will assume it's already gone off and you're done. No questions asked).
It's even naughtier to, say, sneak something like a Gameboy into your bed and play it in the middle of the night.
And naughtiest of all, I would have to say, would be playing a Nintendo DS, a Gameboy or a Leapster in the middle of the night party-style with two other siblings and making noise loud enough to actually wake up your father from a dead sleep.
Yes, dear friend and devoted reader, that is what happened in this very house last night. My Michael awoke to some noise around 4:30 a.m. and when he went to investigate it, he discovered Mason, Maia and Marlee having a little get-together in Maia and Teensy's room. Each of them was playing some kind of electronic gaming device. (Rest assured, those have been confiscated until further notice.)
Here's the miraculous thing: not one of the children woke up one of his/her siblings! Do you believe that? Neither do I. Do they really think I am going to believe that the three of them awoke independently, simultaneously in the middle of the night and started playing with those toys? And what, Mason sleepwalked into his sisters' room? **Grr**
