Re: Month One

i didnt set myself any particular resolutions this year apart from my usual "lose some weight" and "stop wasting so much time on the computer" --with only half-hearted success so far!

Does he still have naps during the day? Can you cut back on these so that he is tired by bedtime? What sort of time are you trying to put him to bed?
