You know how everyone says it's easier to get your kids to sleep if they follow the same nighttime routine?
Our nighttime routine is just a mess right now. It's summer, I've been letting the kids stay up late, foolishly cutting into my alone time...
Audrey is not an exception. She waits until the boys are herded off to bed, and wants her Mommy-and-me-bedtime-alone-time. She crawls up into my lap, snuggles in, and says, "Is it time? Is it time for my guy?"
I thought, last week as I channel surfed, that if I watched a show on mute, she'd knock out from lack of interest. Oh, no, she found a new addiction.
And his name is Alton. Alton Brown, of "Good Eats" fame on the Food Network.
I love his show. It's funny, and he always has some science thrown in along with the yummy stuff he makes. I learn all kinds of cool stuff watching him.
Now Audrey does, too. Her night is ruined if she can't tune in.
Better Alton than Barney, right?
