Putting One to Bed

One doesn't like to fall asleep, in part because his overactive imagination makes him prone to nightmares, and also because he knows if he fails to drop off, I will make him a large mug of this:

12 oz lowfat milk
1 scoop unflavored whey powder
generous squeeze honey
1 Yogi Tea - Bedtime flavored - tea bag

Combine the first 3 ingredients in a saucepan with a whisk, then add the teabag. Stir gently over very low heat until warm. Let rest for 5 minutes or so to allow the tea to steep a little more, pull out the tea bag (squeeze all the yumminess out before you pitch it), whisk one more time, and serve.

You will have one very sleepy youngster on your hands in a matter of minutes, I promise.

At least the Yogi tea works for somebody.

We've resorted to melatonin. After buying every sleepytime tea out there!
