I can't believe WE'RE still awake

We have Booja for the whole weekend while his parents take some long-overdue R&R. I just want to pat Epu and myself on the backs right now. They were both asleep as of 8:15. That's at least half an hour before either of them usually go down, I think. Our secret? Wear 'em out! Here was our day today:

7 a.m. Wake up. No tears for Booja, even though he is used to nursing in the morning.
Eat pancakes.
8:30 - 10:30 a.m. Play with two other toddlers at their home (aka babysitting). Mommy and Daddy take turns keeping World's Most Gentle Dog away from Booja, who is terrified of WMGD.
10:30 - 11:30 a.m. Free drums, rhythm, movement class at our local rec center. By the end of the class, Booja and Nutmeg can barely keep their eyes open.
11:45 quick lunch
12:15 naptime!
2:30 Booja wakes up
3:30 Booja gets tired of waiting and wakes up Nutmeg by poking her through the crib rails
4:00-6:00 birthday party!
6:30: dinner
7: bath
7:50 begin bedtime wind-down
8:15 Sound alseep.

That's right, baby. And Epu and I scored a copy of Brokeback Mountain at Blockbuster, and even more amazingly, Epu has agreed to watch it as long as we make frozen pizza. Hot Saturday night, folks.

You guys are awesome. Booja is obviously comfortable enough their if he is able to Sleep Caterpillar!
