Honey, honey, honey…

Tonight we put both kids to bed and took Lexie outside to give her a bath.  When we came back in, we heard Emma talking through her monitor, with no sign of going to sleep.  Ash headed up the stairs to give her a gentle nudge in the right direction.  The following is the conversation that transpired:

A:  Emma, you need to quit talking and reading books.  It’s way past time to go to sleep.

E:  Honey, honey, honey…You have to listen to me.

A:  Yes, dear?

E:  I can sleep and read books at the same time.

A:  Honey, no you can’t.

E:  Honey, but Daddy said that I can read books and sleep at the same time.

(Which I didn’t say, by the way.)

A:  I don’t think so, because you have to have your eyes open to read books and your eyes closed to go to sleep.

E:  <Big sigh> I don’t think you’re listening.

A:  Yes, I am listening.  I’m just telling you “no.”  Now it’s time to go to sleep.

E:  I guess Daddy was wrong.
