Melody has had some days when she just wanted to play and play, but for the most part has her bedtime routine down – a little snack, pick up and say good night to her toys, wash up, read a book (usually it’s Goodnight Moon because she loves pointing out the mouse), pray. When she does want to stay up, her excuses usually are:
*More play please (she says please for everything)
And I think she might be a little sneaky with this one, but she’s always loved to pray. Once we say, “Amen” she’ll tell us someone else we need to pray for. hehe
This is a funny blog blast because recently at the library, we got Mo Willems’ book Don’t Let the Pigeon Stay Up Late! and there are a lot of excuses that the pigeon makes for not going to sleep.
