Sometimes P falls asleep when he's putting the kids to bed. Last night he did just that, around 8. Anya was in there quietly singing to herself and trying to sleep, but she wound up being too awake. While P slumbered with Ez, she came out and sat with me for a while, watching a little Top Chef. I got her back to bed at 9, and I started dozing on the sofa so I went to bed at 10:30.

And den? And den? (That's what Ezzy says.)

And den Ezzy woke up crying from a bad dream an hour later. I put him in bed next to me, which usually has a soporific effect for both of us, but his dream had made him desperately clingy. He was unable to sleep unless his face was pressed against mine to the point that our eyelashes meshed. I dozed again--until he woke up and had to go to the bathroom at midnight.

I tried. I closed my eyes and held my clingy boy, wedged up against a snoring P. Sometimes when you can't sleep you stare at the clock, but I didn't. I stared at the inside of my eyelids. I finally gave up around 4 and got up, figuring I'd enjoy a little time to myself.

P, having gone to bed at 8, got up a little while ago, and we are now watching Beyond Scared Straight and drinking Ovaltine. I imagine we'll be dozing back off in about an hour...when the kids wake up.
