We drove to my brother’s place this afternoon to celebrate Sinterklaas together. Daughter got overloaded with lots of gifts, as were her nieces and nephew. Despite the sugar rush after eating way too much candy, Daughter fell asleep immediately after I put her to bed. “I think I have never wanted to sleep more than right now,” she confessed on our way home. It was a wonderful way to spend pakjesavond even though I wish more family members could have joined.
