A chic, facetious seque

(Do you ever have words that you’ve read over and over, and didn’t realize for years that they are a word you’re used to hearing, but they look nothing like you expected?)

We’ve transitioned into summer- the kids have been off school for two whole weeks.  Of course, I’ve started out how I do every year- big plans about how many fun things we’re going to do (partly because that’s fun and partly because Evan and Sarah tend to bicker a lot if we spend too much time around the house) , and how I’m going to have a schedule to keep every one sane, and help kids work on their academic weak spots…

So here we are two weeks in- we’ve accomplished a few things from our summer bucket list.  Evan and Sarah have played nicely some days, and seemingly bickered all day other days.  It seems like it’s all tied to sleep- if I can tire them out enough, they can fall asleep before it gets dark at 10:30pm, and can be patient with the other.  So I was thinking, maybe if Harry Potter’s Snape can teach his students to “bottle fame, brew glory, stopper death”, maybe he can teach me to concoct sleep potion?

    Just a thought. I don’t know if it would help and haven’t ever tried it myself, but I have a few friends that swear by melatonin…for themselves and their children. Would that possibly help them go to bed easier? I know that part of the problem is that the sun goes down so late, but I’ve heard great things about using melatonin. Love you. Enjoyed talking to you today.
