A fantastic investment for all couples with children

 I don't know about you, but I dread the mornings where the day starts bright and sunny... before 6am.  Yes, the joys of the long days of summer - love them, but wish they didn't start so early!  Especially when you have little ones who awake at first light. 
Sure, black out curtains are a sure-fire fix, but they are also costly, and if you're a renter, you may not wish to make the investment if you're not looking at long-term tenancy.

Dream Essentials Snooz Silky Soft Eye Mask - Black
The answer is as simple as a sleep mask - something that until a few weeks ago, I had scoffed.  But now, I am a believer.  Because when the Lad wakes up before 6am (seriously!), DH and I will take turns getting up and taking care of him, leaving the other to go back to sleep.  However, sleep does not always return swiftly, especially when the days are exceedingly bright.  But, with a sleep mask, it's 'lights out' - both figuratively and literally, leaving the lucky one able to catch more sleep before attempting to take on the day.

And the super-simple sleep mask pictured to the left?  Currently on sale from for $1.98.  Much, much cheaper than the black-out curtains that would cause the unlucky early-riser to trip and stumble as they gather up the baby and head out of the bedroom at 6am...
