Halloween bedtime stories - scientific bedtime stories part II.

Sorry for being so late with comments - I am still completely booked until Christmas :-). I have plenty of scientific and family occupations, although I promised to slow down in science and focus more on family, simply I cannot stop science because my co-authors depend on my work for finalizing some manuscripts. So this blog was the latest thing I had in mind in the last month, but now I am trying to continue it...

To sleep or not to sleep that is the question - scientific bedtime stories part II.

Just a logical continuation of my previous post... Yes, this is quite typical... I mean last time I started to tell a story to my kids in the dark, I remember that while falling asleep I started to mix up my next scientific talk and paper with the tale. I mean that even half-asleep and half-awake I remember telling my son things like "and then the prince found some PCR amplifiable DNA in Cinderella, oops, sorry", then I continued the story, but then again I fell into a different level of consciousness and continued again "I'm not sure what was the optimal environmental DNA sampling was done" or so :-). I'm just wondering what my kids think about me and my fairy tales at these moments. IT'S NO JOKE, IT'S REAL :-), the real life of a real scientific mum!

To sleep or not to sleep that is the question - scientific bedtime stories part I.

That is quite true. My husband can stay awake for 2-3 min after we put dim light in the kid's room. So I do not like to leave him with the bedtime story issue because for sure I'll hear him snore within one minute... And lately - as I am working during night on scientific issues, so I had not too much time for the blog as well - I am also the one who falls asleep first during the bedtime story...
P.s.: I had some problem with my computer and afterwards I could not install the drawing program until now, this is why I did not prepare new posts until now. But thank you for encouraging comments and mails.
