    Oh boy! Maybe you need to cut his food into squares for a meal every so often as a break! wink

    OT, but great recommendation on "Here Comes Science". DS is in love.

    bmoore, that's so creative. Does she ever do that in regular speech, or does the music being it out? smile

    Does anyone else's kid just randomly sleep in other places in their room besides the bed? I never know where I am going to find my DD9 when I go to wake her up in the morning. I swear I put her to bed IN her bed and the next morning she winds up in the floor (not falling in the floor) either beside the bed on one side of the other or at the end of the bed in her bean bag chair. When she is on the far side of the bed it scares me because I can't see her at first. Should I let her continue to do this because she says she sleeps better in the floor than on her bed?

    Yes. Other places. Other rooms. At the moment DD5 has taken over DD3's crib, and DD3 is displaced and wandering aimlessly around the house.

    Bean bag chair
    Homemade tent (blankets, pillows, etc.)
    Rug
    Closet (not a walk-in)
    Sibling's bed
    Much younger sib's toddler bed
    Hallway outside bedroom

    And on another note: new lyrics for "Let it Go"

    "no right, no wrong,
    no rules for me--
    I'm three!"

    Especially when the pronounciation isn't changed. (I.e. "How old are you?" "I'm free.")

    Also, we love "Here Comes Science" too. smile

    DD was playing a toy keyboard at a bookstore very loudly so I told her we are leaving immediately unless she stops what she is doing. DD's response:

    "I'm not done composing my song. You are interrupting my creativity. This is not fair. This is not right. I HAVE TO FINISH MY SONG."

    We might have to get her a used digital piano soon so we don't get banned from the bookstore.

    DS2.7: Daddy, what is that big book?

    DH: That's the Canadian Income Tax Act.

    DS: I think it would put any normal human being to sleep.
