8 yrs old - Teenager?


A glimpse into bedtime...every single night, there is some variation to the antics of the 3 minions as they attempt to avoid the inevitable bedtime.

- Carli, the oldest sister became a big ball of tears and emotions bc her sister had a sleep mask she swore was hers and just realized where it was THREE yrs after she had misplaced it. My persistence in scouring FB to find picture proof from 2014 that said sleep mask actually did not belong to her was met with a moan of frustration and muttering under breathe about how I just don't understand her and her feelings. It's true. I don't. Most insensitive mom award belongs to me.

- Ava, the middle sister has developed leg injuries so severe it prevents her from getting out of bed to get ready for bed...teeth brushing, pjs and picking out clothes for school are all task she can only complete with crutches which I denied her and thus won the title of meanest Mom within mere minutes of my last award. Oh and apparently if her legs hurt, her ears don't work so all the emotional shenanigans of the sleep mask were completely lost on her as she put said sleep mask on her eyes and went to sleep much to the disbelief of her older sister.

- Drew, the youngest and only male of the crew, walked around the house beating his chest mimicking Tarzan while eluding capture to put his pjs on. He seems to be the most normal of the crew tonight and go figure, Keith put him to bed thereby missing me collect my numerous mom of the year awards in the girls bdrm.


And we are thankful for special teachers who bring extra sleep masks to school so that for just one night...there were no tears, fits or other shenanigans to survive...just one night.  :)
