Begging for bed

Last night we ran some errands and ended up having dinner at a delicious Asian restaurant that happens to be one of our favorites. I knew this meant we would probably get The Chubs into bed late. Usually she does ok if it's just a little later than her usual 7:30 bed time. Last night we didn't get home until after 7:30 and by the time we'd completed the bulk of her bed time routine, it was nearly 8:15. Stephen took over like he usually does and read to her, rocked her and sang to her ( I love hearing it over the monitor, so sweet). But tonight Lexi did not sign "book" over and over again, she had something else on her mind.

Apparently while this whole routine was going on, Lexi pushed up on Stephen's chest, signed "night, night" and whined and reached for her crib basically to say "Well, it's been fun, but PUT ME TO BED ALREADY!"

She also apparently smiled as soon as he laid her in the crib and within a few minutes was completely out.


  1. Too cute! "You've already kept me up past my bedtime so let's just quit this routine nonsense and let me get some sleep."

    Not too often that you find a child asking to go to bed!! :)

  2. Cute! I wish ours were like that. Instead, it's all- "awesome, we're overtired- so let's partay!" around here whenever we're unusally later with bedtime.

  3. On occasion even I am willing to give up my bedtime story for that "delicious sleep." So cute!!!! Must have been a very busy day. ;o)
