My daughter and I are sitting on the couch, finishing up a tv show. She has about an hour before bedtime, and has been bugging me. So just to get a few minutes of peace, I decided to just send her to go get ready for bed.
Me: “Go get ready for bed please.” BabyGirl: sighs and groans Me: “time to get ready for bed”, singing, “teeth and pajamas, teeth and pajamas, teeth and pajamas.” BabyGirl: ignoring me Me: “Go put on your teeth and brush your pajamas.”
She turns and looks at me, as I am smothering a laugh
BabyGirl: “That’s not right.”
Me: “Yes, you need to go put on your teeth and brush your pajamas to get ready for bed.” BabyGirl: “I don’t need to put on teeth, I am not old, I am 8 and pajamas are clothes, Not hair.” Me: starting to laugh, “Go get ready for bed now.”
