I haven't read any books in awhile,the critters keep taking them or I loose them.Someday I'll be able to read more than a magazine blurb while on the pot.
ooo a midnight playgroup sounds great, when we were in WA most of my block was stationed with the same ship so when our spouses were gone we hung out with our kids til the wee hours.Made the adjustment from 2 kids to 3 easier.
Gotta go cook dinner the sun hasn't even set here yet.

I just finished Certain Girls by Jennifer Weiner. Before that was Firefly Cloak by Sheri Reynolds. Now I'm trying to get into White Oleander. I tried to read it once before...I'm not sure what my block is with this book, lol. If I don't get into it this time I'll have to donate it...the library sale is this weekend, no point holding onto things, lol.

Maybe I'll go to the library tomorrow.

Night owl here too. Always have been. drives dh batty. The problem is that these days I don't sleep well at night at all so I sleep half the morning away. I don't know why my best sleep comes between 6-10 a.m. People used to give me sh** about it but I have set boundaries now saying its my life I'll sleep when I want to.

I really value the time alone. No kids. No Husband.

Sigh...I thought I would have a chance to chat but my baby is stirring...
I used to bake late at night.I'd try out new recipes.Now I watch the shows I DVRed during the day so that I could actually listen and not have to watch commercials or through a child.

Nocturnal mama here too! Currently reading an older New Yorker and one of the Lemony Snicket books.

DS goes to bed later than me sometimes. Like magentamama, we both get our best sleeps in the early morn, like 4-10 am or so. And I have my best awake time between 8 pm and 2 am.

I've always been nocturnal and so has DS.

I'm "working" so I need some distraction, or I might be in danger of efficiency.

not at all. all the good parenting advice says to rest when your kids are sleeping. if you can't sleep yourself, do something to unwind. but don't do housework.do that when they're awake.

Geez, then I'd never get anything done! This kid is up from 6am to 9pm most days and doesn't nap anymore. I work full-time. DP can't focus on much other than DS while he is awake (it is really hard, he is super high energy). So my kitchen is still full of dinner dishes and it is almost 10:30pm.
