Bedtime Conversations

Pony: I can't reach my water (said with a pitiful fake cry)
Me: I guess you better grow
Pony: I don't wanna grow. It's smarter to be a kid. Buttercup (older sister) will freak out if I grow.

P: It's too hard to sleep in a bed (sitting up)
M: lay down and try (slightly annoyed voice)
P: But grandpa sleeps up
M: Yes, he does sometimes. Lay down.

Other conversations that took place:

Why Puff the Magic Dragon song doesn't have a girl in it (the book version has the lyrics changed to 'A dragon lives forever but not so little girls and boys'. We were listening to the original version by Peter, Paul and Mary)

Wondering where a cardboard house went that was on display at the library and if she could get her grandpa to make her one.

And a few complaints and questions:

Can't find my pillow, can't reach my pillow, it's too dark, the lights too bright, I don't like my bed, I don't want to be here, where's mommy, daddy, grandma, grandpa, what's that noise, where's my water, I'm hungry, I don't like covers

and finally she pulled up the covers; snuggled closer to me and was quiet.

LOL that's so great! Just the other day Big B (the 3yo I babysit) said, "I can't want to go to bed. ever." It was so matter-of-fact.
Those moments never get old! Especially reading about them on your blog...LOL
PS I really think I should name B&b instead of just calling them B or b. Hmmm...how did you come up with pony and buttercup?
