Thursday, August 5


Charlotte's bedtime, whether it is nap time or bedtime, has completely gone to the birds. Judd and I just kind of scratch our heads and hope for the return of our obedient sleeper. We are VERY consistent with the routine and time. It's not like we are wishy washy about it. However, for the past couple of weeks, we have put Charlotte to bed at 8:15PM and listen to her excuses for not going to sleep through the monitor for 45 minutes.

"My shirt is TOOOOOOOOO tight!"

"My pants are TOOOOOOOOOOO hot!"

"I need anoder sip of milk!"

"I just want to give my Mommy a hug!"

"I need just one more song!"

I think the best one so far was tonight:

"There is a string sticking out of my pillow" (No lie, those were the exact words out of her mouth.)

She was exactly right. There was as string sticking out of her pillow. She felt this was a good enough excuse to not go to sleep. After a quick shove of the string back into the pillow case, she calmed down and went to sleep.

I guess I'm going to take a pair of scissors to her pillow tomorrow.
