Kids R' Great!

The other night, I was lying down with the daughter. She was fidgeting, using her talking "Oobi" hand, having a delightful conversation with her stuffed animal & telling me she wasn't tired. I knew she was.

I began to tell her it was time for bed & she needed her sleep. After all my talking, she still claimed she wasn't tired. I rested my head gently on my pillow and with my eyes closed, I thought I might apply a tactic that has worked for me in other situations. I told her that "whoever falls asleep first, wins!". A few seconds later, she chuckled and said "are you playing a game?".

She won the "game". She fell asleep so fast after that! Funny how that stuff can be so successful sometimes & fall completely flat other times. Now, when she goes down for a nap or to bed, she brings up the game. She's been winning a lot lately. ;)

Another funny Princess Fluffyfart thing - Tuesday, Dock rented movies. He brought home Wall*E. Our wonderful little girl acted as if she was uninterested with a hidey smirk on her face. A few moments later, she told her daddy:

"If you brought home Kung Fu Panda, I would say I wanted Wall*E. If you brought home Wall*E, I would say I wanted Kung Fu Panda. I wanted Kung Fu Panda."

It's one thing for US big people to figure out their little logic, but I have never ever heard one of them flat out say it! Oh, the joys of living with a miniature master mind! We are currently in the world of 2 yr old "Me pick!"everything. Yeah, I need a vacation.

I'm totally borrowing your who goes to sleep first game! It's worth a try! =)

We have Walle, but no Kung Fu Panda yet.

I love the who-can-be-quiet-the-longest game!

Had to come back and tell you, tried that game 3 times, first two, it worked like a charm! 3rd time, I thought she was asleep, grabbed the laptop, she rolls over and says "I win!"
