Do your kids ever wake you up in the middle of the night asking for a drink of water? Mine did, especially during the cold & flu season when the furnace is on for the majority of the night and their little throats were dry and sore.
As I parent, I don’t mind sacrificing sleep for a newborn, but I get a little grouchy in the middle of the night when woken up for any other reason, which brings me to my tip of the day!
Necessity is the mother of invention.
Store a full water bottle in your refrigerator at night and give your older kids full permission to get out of bed to access it for themselves.
