Claire and Mac and I stayed up late watching Downton Abbey. Btw, Mac has been staying asleep better and in his own room, but he still has a really hard time actually falling asleep. So. My Handbook of Marginal Parenting said the best thing to do was to let him come down and watch a show that is inappropriate for his age group, but that he would never understand anyway. That was page 6 in the book. Page 10 said it's fine for Shef to make up his own lyrics to go along with inappropriate pop songs that he doesn't understand. He's Sheffy and He Knows It.
Anyway, I fell asleep thinking about Downton and I woke up thinking about it. We have now finished Season One on Netflix, and we're beside ourselves. How will we watch Season Two in comfort and happiness? I've charged Claire with figuring this out.
