Last Words Of The Day

I walked into Marissa's room a little while ago to relieve her dad after nearly an hour long attempt at getting her to go to sleep.  I sat down in the rocking chair beside her crib and, in a firm voice, I told her "Marissa, playtime is over.  It is time to go to sleep.  Now."  

You know what she said to me?

"Uh-oh Mama"

Do you think I got my point across?

Janice....I have to agree. LOL. That little toot knows her limits with Mama but like all kids, just has to push to the limit and then stick her hairy little toe over the line just enough to see who's in charge! Guess she found out...lol. My question to you Alicia...did she EVER go back to sleep?? lol
Love,
Nana

You know why she wouldn't sleep? Because she's waiting for someone (not naming names) to finish their story! lol

Oh boy!!! Life and times with a todler! Not just any todler, but a special needs one at that!

I agree with Hope on this one, she's waiting for you to finish this love story you started.

And I'm guess that anonymous thing was from our crazy bro Bri Bri and if so..... I LOVE VELCRO TOOOOO!!!

Love you and hope she sleeps tonight!
