The 6:30 bedtime wasn’t far off (see yesterday’s post). At 6:54 all of them are clean, in pajamas, in the bed and listened to four stories. Mack kept asking, “Why we go to bed when it is still morning?”
BUT, the funniest thing said during this night time routine was from Molly. I asked Ruby if her name was on Mrs. Honaker’s tooth fairy club wall since she has lost so many teeth. Ruby said, “No, Mrs. Honaker is just so busy that she hasn’t been able to do it, and I don’t want to ask her about it because she is just so busy and has so much to do.”
Really? Ruby gets it….at least with Mrs. Honaker.
So, I reply, “Wow, Ruby. That is great that you don’t ask her about it because you see that she is so busy with so many other things. We could really practice that around here. When Mommy is busy with something, maybe you can not ask over and over for me to do something else.” (It has been a LONG day…trust me, she does not “get this” when it comes to me.)
Well, Molly pipes up, “Yeah and Daddy, too. When he is on the potty we should not bother him.”
Does anyone else think that is hilarious?? Maybe it is just me, but I laughed really hard.
