    Haven’t read this yet – have to wait till later – but I READ THAT BOOK!! At the Bookshelf the other day. It is awesome. I wanted to buy it.

    … your instinct to go ahead and lie down with him because this phase won’t last anyway isn’t a bad one. if you are feeling frustrated and wishing you were doing other things, it’s not as pleasant, though, so if you can plan ahead that you’ll do that so you won’t feel pulled elsewhere, and take the times it isn’t needed as a happy surprise – well, the phase will indeed soon be over. however, you can pick another choice on that – you’re the mom! head bonks do hurt the mommy too! it’s so hard each time you realize you can’t really protect your child from all harm, nor can you fix everything. but you are all doing great! as you surely do know!

  3. You are right – nothing describes it better than a rollercoaster. Our bedtime routine is often crazy long and at times difficult. I just tell myself that one of these days they won’t want me to read to them or hold their hand because they can read themselves and put themselves to bed.

    P.S. That book is very funny!

    I saw the book at chapters it is hilarious. I know just what you mean about that roller coaster! You and Sean are doing an amazing job riding it though. 🙂

    He is totally a brick!!

    Oh so sorry about the big bonk though. But I hope he enjoys the experience of having a purple eye! (though it’s not something you can sign, like the funny sock.)

    Give him a big hug from me, ok?
