Erin Nicolson sifted through her collection of bedtime books and held up her favorite: "Hanna's Sabbath Dress," by Itzhak Schweiger-Dmi'el, about a girl waiting to try on a new outfit, once customary during the Jewish period of rest. While the 4-year old from Owings Mills spoke of staging her own rendition of the tale, her 2-year-old brother Adam pointed to one of his favorites: "Five Little Gefiltes," by Dave Horowitz, a Yiddish parody of the children's song, "Five Little Ducks."

Last night before I left work, my husband sent me the photo above, with the caption, "Dinner is exhausting. " Aww, how cute, we both thought. He'd been eating his Cheerios and yogurt melts to finish up his dinner while my husband was cooking in the kitchen, and just conked out. It wasn't all that long before Aaron's usual bedtime, and he put him down in his crib. Ahh, an easy bedtime for the little guy, we both thought. Annnnnnd ... not so much. A bit after I got home he woke up, and we tried to give him the bottle he'd missed and put him back to bed, but he was totally unglued.

Q: My 10-year-old daughter has begun to complain about her bedtime, saying that she isn't sleepy. I insist that she go to bed at 8 on a school night like she always has. She says that all her friends get to stay up later and she should get to, too. What is TTC the right bedtime for a 10-year-old?A: Neither your daughter's age nor what her friends do can tell you absolutely when she should go to bed. Most children need less sleep as they get older, and we think 8 o'clock sounds early for your daughter.

Sometime in the next few days, Gunnery Sgt. Blaine Scott will arrive in Afghanistan for a three-month stint. Around the same time, his two young children, Isabella and Blaine Jr., will get a package addressed especially to them in the mail at their home in California. Before the 18-year veteran of the Marine Corps boarded a plane at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport headed to the Middle Eastern war zone late Tuesday, a cheerful and smiling Scott pored over a selection of brand-new donated books, selecting a mystery for his 7-year-old daughter and a book about trucks for his 4-year-old son. "I haven't seen my kids in forever," Scott said.

My son has been auditioning since birth for the role of barnyard rooster. At sunrise, his eyes snap open like window blinds in a cartoon, and he hits the floor running.

Saying her name repeatedly, I rub limbs that feel as if they have had the bones removed.And this is the best part of summer vacation: For 12 weeks, I will not have to deal with my children's idiosyncratic sleep patterns.

Q**What is the proper bedtime for a 3-year-old?A**Children vary in how much sleep they need and how it fits into the family schedule, so there's no magic hour for bed.You can tell whether your daughter's getting enough sleep by her behavior during the day. Is she difficult to wake up and grumpy in the morning? Do you have to push her to get her ready? Does she seem to lack energy and excitement? Is she drowsy during the day? Do you find her asleep unexpectedly? Is she irritable and demanding during the evening?

If your mother wrote a weekly humor column and you were graduating from college this weekend, now really, what would you expect? You would expect a witty and insightful retrospective, composed in a letter format and printed in The Baltimore Sun. Dear Experimental Child, At last, the truth can come out — we really didn't know what we were doing when we brought you, our firstborn, into this imperfect world. My most vivid memory of your first night home is of picking you up at around 2:30 in the morning.

It was nearly noon, not midnight, and the ball that hung three stories high looked more like a cross between a pinata and a helium balloon than the giant one in Times Square that grown-ups have come to know and love. But to a crowd of more than 1,900 - many sporting tutus, face glitter and brightly colored party hats - the setting at the Maryland Science Center could not have been more perfect for ringing in the New Year, kid-style. It was the second annual Midnight Noon, a bash the museum calls a New Year's celebration for those whose bedtime happens long before the ball in Times Square makes its descent, and all the right people were excited.

Jane Farrington's first impression of what would be her new home in Baltimore's Mount Vernon neighborhood was one of awe the moment she and her husband stepped beyond the tiny vestibule entrance. "We walked in the front door," Farrington remembered, "I took one look at the spiral staircase and thought, "Oh God, I hope the basement is dry!" The basement - partially above ground in the circa 1882 townhouse - was completely dry. The four-story brick home, in fact, had been beautifully maintained by its former owner, clinching the deal for Farrington and her husband, Gregg Davis.

Shortly after Sheila Goldacker moved into an apartment in Nottingham, she woke up feeling itchy. Her arms, back and stomach were dotted with red spots. Her sheets, she noticed as she leaned in to fix the bed, were speckled. Goldacker ripped off the sheets and discovered a scene straight from a horror film: her mattress was crawling with tiny brown bugs. "At that point I freaked out," said the 45-year-old legal secretary. "I get itchy every time I talk about it."

President Bush said yesterday that he would move "promptly" to name a successor to Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist. Rehnquist's death late Saturday gave Bush a rare opportunity to put his conservative stamp on the Supreme Court by filling two vacancies simultaneously. Bush is the first president in 34 years to face two court vacancies at once. Rehnquist's death came days before the Senate is scheduled to begin confirmation hearings for John G. Roberts Jr., the appellate court judge Bush tapped in July to succeed retiring Justice Sandra Day O'Connor.
