So we put them down to sleep on the main level around 6 o'clock every night. At around 10 o'clock we bring them upstairs and feed them in our room and then put them to sleep in our room. Between the hours of 6 pm and 10 pm we get to have dinner together, talk and watch some tv.... so this time is precious to say the least. Isla is awesome at falling asleep shortly after 6 pm, no mater how bright or loud the room may be. Alice on the other hand... would prefer to not sleep at all at this point and fights it quite often with all of her might. Making dinner when your wife keeps asking you to turn the lights down has proven to be a challenge for Andrew (yes I married a man who cooks... thank god!) so the whole under the cabinet lighting idea was perfect.... and we've secretly wanted these lights since we moved in... but now have a good excuse to actually buy them.
Luckily there were already outlets pre-installed under the cabinets so it was just a matter of drilling in the fixtures and concealing the cord... easier said of course by me... who watched and laughed at the moves required to get the lights in.
Everything is so sparkly under these lights and I am happy to report that tonight at 7... Alice was also asleep. thank you andrew.
