While you (both of you!) weren’t napping…
I came in to give you extra snuggles because you said you hadn’t had enough.
I rewrapped your blanket because you like to be burrito-ed during your naptimes and I aim to please. Does anyone else wrap you as well as me?
I brought you “one skinny carrot” because you were hungry.
And then I brought you one sandwich, two graham crackers, and three strawberries because you are the very hungry caterpillar and are trying to turn into a butterfly.
I slid my ipad under your door and whisper-shouted, “Just play whatever you want!” because I am a really intentional parent.
I sent you back upstairs because you pranced downstairs naked as a jaybird and announced that you were ready for your bath. (Literally, this has never happened in your entire childhood, so as soon as your sister woke up, you both had a bath)
I brought up stamps, paper, and markers up to your room, and started crossing my fingers that I wouldn’t walk into a disaster later. (I did)
I brought you one yogurt-covered pretzel because for the love of all that is holy will you please go to sleep?
I ate my entire secret stash of dark chocolate for what I think are obvious reasons.
Go to sleep, you guys.
