The Experiment

The Players

Neither child has been sleeping well at night lately despite each having his/her own room. Both usually end up in Mommy and Daddy's room (read: bed) well before dawn breaks, much to said parent's chagrin and sleep-detriment. The aforementioned sleep-deprived parents, out of sheer desperation/exhaustion, will attempt the daring, the bold, the unthinkable, the hopefully-not-sleep-defying placement of 2 tykes in the SAME BEDROOM! Will they survive? Will said mother and father finally get to lay their soon-to-be-14-month-old down in his crib just once at bedtime without him crying out in fear of his solitary confinement? Will the 3-year-old ever stop talking to the 13-month-old in the dark so they can finally fall asleep? Will both children sleep through the night without forcing their way into the unwilling "family bed"? And will the whole family finally get some much needed zzzz's?

Only time will tell...

Tune in next time for the gripping continuation of "Sleep, My Children"!

I made a big pot of lentil and vegetable soup for dinner tonight. It was gooooood. And garlic breadsticks. And they were goooooood.

Just call me Suzy.

Oh, but don't look too closely at the dirt/grime/clutter/unpacked and unwashed clothes from last week's trip/toys all scattered everywhere. One thing at a time.
