Sleep, Glorious Sleep

Monday, October 30, 2006
At Motherlode this weekend, Andi Buchanan was almost deliriously happy about the fact that she was able to take advantage of the extra hour of sleep provided by "fall back" for the first time ever as a mom. I'm sure many of the other conference attendees felt the same way. After all, that's one of the things that people don't tell you ahead of time when you're thinking about having kids: when the clocks shift on that first Sunday morning, your kids don't make the shift, so you miss out on the chance to sleep in.

While we're talking sleep, I thought I should wrap up some loose ends on the Sleep Solutions Book Blog tour. (I had limited access to the Internet last week, what with the Motherlode Conference and all.) So here's what was going on while I was AWOL:

  • Kyra of This Mom was talking about how refreshing it is to read a book that didn't offer pat solutions or lay on the guilt -- and she pronounced the book "fantastically helpful." She also said some absolutely lovely things about me, so I'm going to be bookmarking this post for those Very Bad Days/Weeks/Months as an Author. (What am I saying? I'm going to wallpaper my office with it. We'll call this new print Kyra.)

  • Tertia of So Close took some time out from her own book tour to talk about what she liked about Sleep Solutions. She likes the book's warm and welcoming tone ("There is no guilt: no judgment, no moral high ground, just an acknowledgment that different solutions work for different sleep problems in individual children.") She highly recommends the book for moms-to-be.

  • Meanwhile, Tracey of Picture This has been busy ooh-ing and aah-ing over the entries in the "Sleeping Like a Baby" photo contest, trying to pick the winners. (I don't envy her that task.) Stay tuned for more about that.


Thanks to everyone who made this blog tour so much successful and so much fun -- the bloggers, the blog commenters, and Andi and Miriam of MotherTalk.
