Sawing Wood

Yesterday I went to the bookstore in search of resources to help with our non-crib sleeping baby. I had a tip from some other moms about two books. I was able to buy Kim West's book but the second one, a no cry approach especially for toddlers, wasn't available yet.
I noticed that they have those theft deterrent gateway things before you could use the restroom. Smart. That should alleviate that whole "bathroom book" issue (ala George Costanza).
Now I just need to find time to read the book in order to come up with a plan. Of course it may mean less sleep in the interim but atleast it will give me hope. Sometimes that's all a tired mommy needs.
