We were so fortunate to have Bernie the bear come visit Bug and her mom this evening.  When we got home, Bug showed Bernie all her toys and how to play with them.  Mom made veggie biryani but Bernie and Bug decided they couldn’t possibly eat such a thing so they made egg sandwiches instead.  They spent some time playing together and then sat down to read all 3 books at once!  Bug read all the words she could and Mom read the rest.

When it was bedtime, Bernie got his teeth brushed and then went upstairs with Bug to sleep.  He was provided with his own pillow in the shape of a stuffed sheep and his own blanket, but soon crawled under the covers with Bug.

In the morning we will have to get dressed, get all bundled up, see how cold it is outside, and come back to school.  We’d love to have Bernie come visit again sometime, the visit seemed so short!



I struggle, frequently, with not sleeping well.  Since Bug’s room is so darn cold, I tend to keep the heat up high so she stays warm.  Thing is, even on the coldest nights she comes downstairs in the morning quite warm.  Her hands and feet are downright hot to the touch and she does not seem the least bit uncomfortable.

So I decided to start turning the heat down a bit at night in order to save on the heating bill.  (Not that I think it matters because I am positive our company is dirty and dishonest, but that was the intention).  Lo and behold, I am sleeping WAY better at night!
