Last night bedtime for the girls was a nightmare. Lili decided that it was the night to test all of her limits with us and with Aly. Of course we had to be up early to go to a birthday party this morning, so it was NOT the night for TigerLili's shenanigans, but shenanigan she did!!
She kept getting up and coming in the living room and then she finally gave up on that and just woke Aly up and started bugging the snot out of her. Aly was over it, I was over it, David was over it and Lili was having a ball. (except for the spankings...I don't think she like that, but it certainly did not deter her!!)
Anyway, she finally went to sleep WAY WAY WAY too late and it made for a very long day today. Sooooooooo, bedtime rolled around again tonight and I really figured that Lili would just pass out from exhaustion, but nooooooooooooooooooooo...she didn't get out of bed, but she started bugging Aly the second I left the room. Usually Aly just ignores her for the most part and lets her get into trouble on her own, but tonight I heard this every few minutes..."Mom...she's playing around again!" Now, bear in mind...David was in his recliner with his laptop taking his Humanities test...or should I say TRYING to take his humanities test. I'm hoping that his test doesn't contain the words, "She's playing around again" anywhere in there!!!
I went back into their room, dealt with Lili and then asked Aly why she needed to keep announcing that Lili was causing problems again? I told her that Daddy was taking a test in the other room and her yelling was very loud. She sat up in bed and stuck that pointer finger out at me and said, "Mom, I'm gonna keep calling out when she does it. I'm not gonna take it anymore...we're not having another night again like we did yesternight!!"
Yesternight...I love it!!! Thats my girl!!
They are asleep again...finally...exhausted from a fun day...
In HIS Mighty Grip~
