Nobel Peace prize candidate, or just grasping at straws?

I've posted before about the chaos that ensues here in the Mommy Matters household near bedtime, and I think I've got it figured out now.

I've noticed that my children get a second wind right about the time we put them in their pajamas. The little fleece shirts go over their heads, and their energy level instantly rises, along with all the little hairs on the tops of their precious heads. (Do you see where I'm going with this?)

Then they run circles around their father and me, babbling incoherently and giggling until they can't breathe. Bubblehead and I sit with our eyelids propped open and searching for the energy to get up off the floor and get their teeth brushed and tie tuck them into bed. And then tonight it hit me - static electricity. The charge created by their jammies is acting as a battery charger for my babies. Thank goodness I solved the mystery! Now, for the solution....

I'm thinking I will triple up on the dryer sheets and add a humidifier to the house in order to fight off the static electricity. And as a final precaution, my children will now be required to have their jammies on no later than 3:00 pm, just to be sure their batteries run down before bedtime.

I'm the Mom of two. They drive me crazy. I love them dearly. I want one more. I'm not insane, yet. My hubby says I'm a snob with an inferiority complex. There is more to me than being a mother. I just don't remember any of it.
