The funniest thing about last night... was that after trying to rock, wrestle, lie next to, and even nurse Jet back to sleep for about a good hour and a half, Jet lay there like a lump for a good ten minutes. I really thought he was asleep and I was drifting off myself. Then, suddenly, for no apparent reason, he pops up and starts bawling in my ear, "Chokwat milk! Chokwat milk! Chokwat milk! I wan' chockwat milk!"

Even as exhausted as I was at that moment, I fell over giggling. I ended up warming a cup of milk for him, without the chocolate, but he didn't seem to notice. So long as I shake it thoroughly, he believes it's got chocolate in it, and I learned. No caffeine for the toddler... even in a squirt of chocolate syrup.

The good thing was that he did go down for about three hours after the warm milk. Yay for tryptophan, even in minute quantities.
