I am yet to find a good way to consistently put my kids to bed on time. Please, someone tell me: is that even possible? I mean, what does it even mean "good way"? You know those movies and shows in which kids obey immediately when you tell them it's time to go to bed, and then lie in bed with closed eyes and a blissful smile listening to you reading them the story? Well, that script didn't come from my household :( It seems to me that the later the hour of the day the louder I become!
On top of that, my sole weapon against tiredness, every parent's best friend, my daily companion - coffee - betrayed me! Continuous consumption messes up my stomach something fierce and so - woe is me! - I am forced to give it up :( Rhodiola, I'm coming back to you.
