Yep. And I would love to be able to take naps now, when I really need them!

My kids nap on mats in preschool. They go all day though.

True - these days they expect them to have read War and Peace before they even start school.

Well we've done the Iliad and Odyssey, but we haven't done War and Peace yet.

I had a book memorized when I started, and could pick out some words. I had all of those little Dr. Seuss size books that were from some kind of book club.

My kids have several books memorized, but they have a ton more. It's been hard, because Ver1 is really good at memorizing, but she wants to read too.

I would think it translates into reading soon enough. King Midas and the Golden Touch. That was my first 'lil book.

Did everyone see the blog post about the wooter who was in Haiti during the earthquake? He used one of the lumppod led lights from a bag to light his way.

I ordered those during that woot-off, when everyone poked fun at them. I love them.

I have one something like that, but it's not a stick-on. And I just noticed, one of the LEDs is burned out.

Oh I got a set of those in a bag ages ago! I LOVE THEM! I don't have them stuck on anything, but I keep one in my wallet and purse.

Well I'm gonna try to get some sleep, could be a challenge the contractions aren't always able to be talked through, which means if they continue they will probably wake me up.

Goodnight all! I'll post again when I'm awake enough for it.

I bought a ton of them once. To pick up poo at night. I never used them. Got tiny flashlights now.
I should find them.
I wanted to stick them onto my car remote, but the remote key thing was too rounded.

Well, Rusty warned me that the lady with the baby carrage have passed the house.
Gave them a growl. Don't like growls with babies.

Got a new appliance guy coming today. Fix the broken fridge light.
Need to get the dog to the park and go to the bank before he gets here.
It would be nice if the floor and fridge were clean too.

Most people would do that first.

I think son is waving at cars again. He is keeping count of people giving him the finger.
He has a full character costume now. So Lady Liberty doesn't have facial hair anymore.
