Parenting Question for Today

Boy Detective is on his first sleepover without his parents, to his grandmother’s house, at her suggestion.

Supposing that the liquor store we walked to after they left had in fact been in possession of champagne and I had therefore purchased some, and given that Boy Detective’s usual bedtime is between 8pm and 8:30pm, what is the earliest hour that I could have concluded that he was unlikely to be brought home in hysterics and need to nurse to sleep?

Just planning my mimosa schedule for next time.

    A very good, and very important question, to which I do not have the answer (sorry!). I’m reminded of the first time that my nephew stayed over night. Around midnight he started screaming bloody murder for his “PaaaaaPaaaaa”. It was disturbing. Of course, Papa came right away to pick him up. In my family we call that Aunt FAIL. :)

    You need to follow up here…what happened? And, by the way, I believe this is the first time I have ever read your blog. I can’t promise I will again–just mind dead from writing my whole lesson plan on Ancient China and Japan (or plans, as the case may be).
