Lara has really been balking at going to bed lately. She is a night owl but she NEEDS her sleep, of course. So, every night we have the same conversation.
Me: Lara, time for bed.
Lara: Mommy, how many minutes do I need to stay in bed. 7?
Me: No, 15 minutes.
Lara: MOM! If I stay in bed 15 minutes then I will fall asleep!
Yes, yes, that is the point.
Or another bedtime quote-
Lara: I don't want to lie down because I am sleepy. And if I lie down I will go to sleep.
Vivi, not to be outdone by cute quotes-
Vivi: I am NOT a peacemaker! I am a mad VIVI!
