All for Tiki related goods chime in with an "Aye!"

So my big update on Sunday night was hijacked by Mr. Needs Attention.

Jack was a royal pill on Sunday night. From 8:30 to 12:30 he fussed, wiggled and generally refused to go to sleep under any circumstances. Finally I latched on to an idea.

We're having a Hawaiian themed party at work in a week or so. Falling prey to my love of all things Tiki I purchased a Tiki Head lava lamp on Saturday for my desk at work. ($7.48 at Target on blowout.) I thought it might be just the thing.

I staggered into the garage Sunday night and set the lamp up on the table next to the rocker in Jack's room. Within 20 minutes the lamp had heated up enough for the lava to do it's bit.

Jack was awestruck.

Eventually the hypnotic motion of the lava lamp worked its voodoo on my sleepy son. The soothing motion of the red lava dried the tears and put Jack to sleep.

Praise the Volcano God!
