The late night/insomniac thread... come say hello!

It's about 1am where I live but I noticed that a lot of people are online here at DC!

What is everyone up to? Can't sleep? Baby keeping you awake? I'm working on a paper that I have due tomorrow. I'm half online/half working. The online portion I'm justifying to myself by calling it "research" - although I'm not sure how much cooking has to do with cognative and language development of toddlers! (which is what I am writing my paper on)

Anyway, if you are online now come say hi. (and why you are up so late!)

"Research" away. You have a valid excuse to be here on dc, having a toddler myself, you can research me. Aidan is 2 and let me say, his language is developing so quick. He is saying new things every day. I'm barely able to keep up noticing them all. More than anything he is refering to himself in the first person instead of the third. Probably not much help in the way of research but I like to brag about my kids...and yes, the baby is keeping me awake. How did you know?

Your kids are soooo cute! Every time I see your avatar I feel like squeeling because they are so adorable. Hehe.

Toddlers are so interesting... and you are right about how quickly they develop. I'm sure you notice differences even from week to week! (same with babies as well... they develop SO quickly) What is interesting about toddlers is that they are just beginning to develop a sense of self - ie: "I am a seperate person and am different from Mommy/Daddy/Brother/Sister." That is why toddlers can be so egocentric because they are just realizing that they are in control of themselves and in part, their world. (which creates power struggles with parents... as I'm sure you know!!!)

Anyway, since I am talking a bit about child development this counts as "work" right? Hehe... (actually, I'm almost done my paper anyhow)

I do a radio show with a friend of mine on Thursday night for a few hours, on a community radio station.

Usually I stay up pretty late, anyway, as I work mostly nights. Usually my computer time. But this is really late for me.

Thanks, I think they are pretty cute too, but I just might be a little biased. It's amazing to see them growing up so quickly, right before my eyes. Sometimes, it's almost too fast for me. I love the ages of my kids right now.

Aidan is so awesome and he makes me laugh and smile. He's developing a great imagination now. I like seeing his language develop, he's been so physical for so long, it's neat for me to see the change. It's almost like he focused on climbing the dishwasher to get up on the counter and now that he has that down, he can focus on telling me about it.

Callum is doing all the baby stuff. I like how much he smiles. It makes me feel so warm that he smiles just because I talk to him. It doesn't take much to please him. He is so attentive, more than his brother was at this age, which makes me come up with all sorts of predictions. I wonder if any of them will be right, I should write them all down.

I can see why some women end up with 8 kids. They are just too much fun!

Wow Erik! Isn't it about 3:30? I'm off to bed. Goodnight. Nice talking with you grumblebee!

Cool thread, as something of a night owl it's good to know I'm not alone! 5:15am here and I'd best head off to bed soon

Sushi, you crack me up!

In days gone by it'd always seem like Malto Mario was on (the cooking channel, wherelse would my dial be )in the wee hours of the am when sleep eluded me and I got so tired of that pithcy "naaan-nnna-aaa-naaa" Italian sounding music that they pipe in around commercial times - Not quite the same, but you get my sympathy!

(PS - I love Italian music, just not the same few cords of a boring tune over and over.)
