Gotta see the sky

My daughter has become proficient in bedtime stalling techniques.

"Snuggle?"

"Bath!"

"Read this?"

The most effective one of all, though, is, "Sky?"

We go out front, sit on the steps, and look at the sky, and we talk. We talk about our day, and what she's going to do tomorrow. We talk about the moon, and how bright it is, or if it's hiding, we wonder where it might be. We talk about the color of the sky, and the weather.

She's got me pegged.

  1. My personal preference as a child was always "I wanna drink of water on the daddy-hip".

    My older niece always used "But I like you and I love you...just one more movie!"

    I think it's a generational thing.

  2. I was always a wuss. I'd just go to bed...:)

  3. I did too...my sister would fight the bed thing, so it was only appropriate that Courtie do the same thing.
