Sad news, my hat did NOT shrink like it's supposed to. I still have a very unflattering sack! I think my friend's washing machine does things a little too gently and we needed something much more serious. I'm just hopeful I can actually use it before the weather gets warm.
Much better bedtime tonight. I had to basically camp outside the door and put Caleb back in bed every time he got up, which was about every 5 minutes. Finally, the lights went off and stayed off. Yay!
