ugh. DS just fell asleep and its only 8:30. This usually means it's going to be a rough night. I've written before about him sleeping best from 11-9 or 12-10 or even going to bed later will guarantee a long solid sleep. But he is also a child with whom you cannot possibly enforce bedtimes or induce sleep. He just falls asleep when he's ready. he sleeps just like an adult would, except he still nurses to sleep and when he's waking up
Orangefoot, thanks for bringing up the crockpot from a nocturnal, late riser perspective. But DH has been working more and cooking is all up to me, so throwing the evening meal into the crockpot in the morning and then forgetting about it till it's time to eat is really enticing. Plus we eat alot of stews, soups and bean dishes, so all of those are well suited to crock pot cooking.
Majikfaerie, hopefully rats won't bother you anymore and hope you get a good sleep. How about some chamomile tee?
