Olivia likes to stall going to sleep, but what kid doesn’t?
This was tonight’s play-by-play.
Round one (shouted from her bedroom)
Olivia: I’m itchy. I need lotion.
Me: Get one squirt and rub it in good.
Round two (peeking into my bedroom door)
Olivia: Why is PomPom still awake? It’s past her bedtime.
Me: She’s waiting for you to go to sleep. (she leaves)
Round three (slinking into my room)
Olivia: Mommy. Do we have enough light bulbs?
Me: For what?
Olivia: For da lamps and stuff. In case they burn out.
Me: We have plenty of light bulbs. Don’t worry.
Olivia: Good. I was worried. Good night, mommy.
Me: Good night.
That was the end. Normally we have to have 3 sips of water, a few potty trips, another baby, another book, blankets are too straight, blankets are crooked, she needs her feet propped up, and so on.
Think I need to remind Will to pick up some more light bulbs. Just in case.
