A Bedtime Conversation
Me: "Hi honey. I was just checking on you and closing the door so Patrick doesn't wake you up" (Mae had opened the door on the other side of the baby gate). "Go to sleep and have sweet dreams."
Sadie: "Mommy, when I grow up and marry Jesus, what will my dress look like?"
Me: "I don't know sweetie."
Sadie: "But what will it look like Mommy? When I marry God?"
Me: "Different orders have different habits. Now it's time for sleep."
Me: "The outfits nuns wear. Did you know there's even an order that wears pink? If you want I can show you the picture on my computer in the morning."
Sadie: "No. Mine is going to be a brown dress. With a black veil and a white cape."
Me: "Okay. Now go to sleep. I love you."
Sadie: "Goodnight Mommy."
This is what stalling to not go to sleep looks like in the little girls room...
