Kids tossing and turning? Just can’t get them to go to sleep? Go out and learn!
The world is a different place at night. I found a $20-$30 LED work light, and brought it outside once when I couldn’t find one of their flashlights. It has a stand on it, and it has sparked many ‘can we do a night time adventure?’ long before they are tossing and turning!
I just can’t picture saying ‘no’ when they ask me to learn.
Other night time adventures include riding around silently through the neighbourhoods with the unicycle stroller, quietly cruising for raccoons and skunks! Because it is silent, and i can get out quickly in any direction with me between the animals and the kids…we have had some excellent ‘just watch them doing their stuff’ late at night adventures…they can sleep when they’re tired.
