For a good night's rest offer a night cap made of freshly squeezed moldy oranges, hand crushed coffee beans, a pinch of salt and I don't even know what else.

Actually, the kids were very disappointed this morning when they learned Cameron did not come last night. I consoled them with the thougth that maybe he had come but we were all sleeping and had locked the door so he couldn't get in. They thought that was ok.
Also, I was not aware and did not approve of the mattress trap in any way. Its amazing what they can do in the time it takes me to load the dishwasher. I do appreciate their creativity and collaboration. Now I'll just need to get them to do the same when it comes to cleaning. Which they now have a lot of.
