Lights out

We had the power go out a week or so ago. We were all in the basement when the lights went out. J and I each scooped up a kid and headed upstairs. The power came back on by the time we'd found and lit a bunch of candles. Of course.

This incident prompted J to make an impulse buy - not typical of him - at Costco of a pack of nightlights that turn into flashlights. They're quite handy actually.

We already use nightlights to make middle of the night feedings easier, but now we also will always be able to find a flashlight quickly.

The only downside is that these nightlights are easy to pull out of the wall and every morning Baby K grabs the one in the hall outside her room and carries it around. Every morning I shove a plug cover in the outlet and every night I put the nightlight back in the socket.

A small price to pay to have a softly lit path to her room in the middle of the night.
