Lollygagging

Pearl will do anything to avoid going to sleep.
We have a very itemized routine that makes her feel like
she gets to do a lot of things before going to bed.
{She gets a vicks/vaseline facial treatment when allergies kick in}

- Clean room
- put on jammies
- brush teeth
- read 2 books
(which always turns into 3)
- say prayers
- go to sleep

    Then it usually goes something like this:

    "Mom... mom... I'm scaared,
    there are monsters under my bed."
    So we check for monsters.
    There are none.
    "There are snakes under my bed."
    None of those either.

    This was Pearl last night when she decided to pull out
    "but my tummy is so hungry."
    Dad fell for that one.
    He made her stay in bed--
    but brought her a very small bowl of cheerios.

    She ate it,
    and off to dreamland she went.
