Smarty Pants...

Just had to post a funny thing that happened with Avery tonight. My mom is here helping me out with the girls while Craig is overseas. He goes to Lichtenstein every year for two weeks for work, and thank goodness my mom is willing and able to help me out! Anyway, today we played hard and after an early naptime for the girls, we headed out for some shopping, then some playground time at Avery's favorite park, followed by dinner out. It was about 6:30 when we returned home and both girls seemed very tired, so we decided to give them their baths and put them to bed! Avery always went to bed at 7pm from the time she was a baby up until about the past year where it has crept up to 8 or 8:30 pm. So I didn't think that 7 would be too early tonight since she was tired. Bailey of course fell right to sleep, but after about 20 minutes in the bed, Avery came walking into the kitchen and I said, "What are you doing?" She said "It's morning time!" I said, "No ma'am, you haven't even been to sleep yet!" We walked into her room and she walked over to the window and said, "See, I'll show you." She pulled back the curtains to reveal the still sunny sky. Oops :) Maybe 7 is a little too early to bed for this girl! I had to explain that it was still nighttime even though the sun was still up and that she needed to try her best to close her eyes and go to sleep. She said, "OK, Mommy, but I'm having a harrrrrrrrrrrd time going to sleep!" Poor thing. But she could use the extra sleep tonight!

That is soooo cute! That's how I always felt in the summer when I was a kid, we always had so much fun that it was sad to head to bed while the sun was still up! What a good girl!
