Ah, the woes of being a parent. My two children seem to be having some trouble falling asleep. Some commennts they have made recently while they should be falling asleep:
I think I heard something.
I can’t stop thinking about bad things.
I have a question: Can I have two cookies in my snack tomorrow?
I have to tell you something: Why does Mars look so rusty?
I have something else to tell you: Tonight, Jupiter was the only planet in the whole sky.
Can I have a band aid for my cut? I cut myself when I was playing with the Playmobil horse.
Today, at school, I found some treasure in the sandbox and no one would let me keep it.
I don’t want to go to school tomorrow.
I can’t wait to go to school tomorrow.
I have to return my library books tomorrow.
Before you got home we could hear a mouse over by the art table, and you know what? At school, Kristen told us that one time she was with her lawyer and a mouse, I mean a squirrel, popped its head right out of a hole in the wall and she screamed!
How soon is it until Christmas?
I don’t know what I should dream about tonight.
For Christmas, I know just I should order from Santa–a tractor!
I’ve tried everything I can think of to fall asleep but I still can’t fall asleep; I’ve tried to lie this way and that way and do everything and I still can’t even though I tried really hard.
I have to go poop.
When you gotta go…
