A survey

Do you ever have nights when, if it weren't illegal, (I'm assuming), and morally reprehensible, you'd just shoot your kids with a tranquilizer dart and drop them in bed?

I know my answer. What's yours?

Steve Carell got interviewed on the red carpet at the premiere of "Get Smart" and was asked what super power he'd want if he could have one. He chose being able to put the kids to bed in under 5 minutes. That would truly be a super power.

You guys are all giving me a lot of comfort! I'm not glad for your struggle, but I'm so happy to know I'm not alone! I'm sorely tempted to get a babysitter sometimes just for the hour of 7:30 p.m. to 8:30p.m. because that's the bedtime window.

Bedtime is the hardest. I am exhausted whycan't my kids be. The worst is the nursing baby.
We drugged Jarrett with Benadryl so he would not cry through his baby blessing.

This morning at 5:30 when both girls were up was one of those moments.

It helps to have them on a schedule, as you know. But every time I would get them on one, David (the night owl) would insist on keeping them up because -- get this -- "they got up so well this morning. We need to reward them!" Truth is, he loved snuggling with them in front of the television. Bedtimes around here were a nightmare if hubby was around!

Steve Carrell is awesome! And I would go more pharmaceutical....

I want that device Syndrome had in The Incredibles where he could suspend someone so that only their eyeballs moved. Then they had to listen to him. I know my kids would be rolling their eyeballs, but at least they would hold still, be quiet and listen for a little while.
