One night a while back bedtime was particularly difficult. Brian went in to get the girls quiet. A few minutes later, I went to provide reinforcement. Kaleia was crying "Mama, Mama, Mama!", arms outstretched.
Me: "Yes, you were crying."
Kaleia: "Maygno. Waher"
Me: "Yes, Maggie was crying too. She wanted water. She's all done now."
Me: "Yes, Papa came in. It is time for nigh-night. Do you want a snuggle?"
Kaleia: (Nod) "Sing."
Me: "Do you want to sing Twinkle, Twinkle?"
Kaleia: (Nod) "Manu."
So precious. Her most requested bedtime song is "Manu" or O come, o come Emmanuel.
More recently I went in to check on her after she had been bounce-chanting. I thought she would tire out and fall asleep but figured I better check on her after it lasted over an hour. When I went in she said:
2am and our 2 year old is requesting pizza?
The next night Brian tended to a similar situation and swears she requested money.
