Re: [IP] Re: forgetting Night Time Checks



Yes, we have had a dual alarm clock for years!  Hubby used to forget to
reset for me to get up for work when he left really early.  But that hasn't
helped much with Rachel, I either end up hitting snooze or just simply sleep
through it.  I don't do that on the couch or in her room, JUST MY BED!  I am
gonna try to move back in this week since her numbers are more level.
