I just put the kids to bed. They hate getting in the bed early, but that's the rule on school nights: teeth brushed and in the bed by 9:30pm. They can, however, read for a while before turning out the lights. See how that works? Must go to bed early... Oh, what's that? You want to stay up later? Ok then, read for a while. I just sent my oldest son to bed with Animal Farm / 1984. He is between books and wanted something different. He's going to read 1984 first based on the introductions.
