Well This will be our 2nd in 1 year so I'm kinda used to the full time
attention thing. It's our third and all our kids have been pretty good
nappers (fingers crossed) so hopefully i can get a couple of hours a day to
read up. I'm going to check out that book this weekend and see if it's for
me though. Thanks for the advice
