when i was still living with my mom, she does that all the time, out of apprehension and concern for our safety. she has four girls for children (including me), which makes her doubly nervous when one of us don't come home before nine in the evening. she would just watch t.v., or lie in bed waiting for a text message from us. but even if we text her to tell her we're coming home a lot late, she still wouldn't sleep and wait for us still. how about you? do you stay awake to wait for other household members to come home?
