About 5 minutes ago Scott announced that it was bedtime for the girls. They know that they can get a quick sip of water and then it's time to head upstairs for the usual routine.
After finishing her water, Danyka came to me and asked if she could put pajamas on her doll that is going to sleep with her tonight. I said no because it was time to go to bed right now. She should have thought about that earlier. So little miss sneaky pants went over to her daddy, who was putting some stuff away in the closet and said, "Daddy, I have to tell you a secret." She then proceeded to whisper in his ear, "Can I go put pajamas on my doll real quick?" Fortunately he was there to hear our conversation and he responded, "Didn't you and Mommy just have this discussion?" She slyly remarked, "Yes, but I was hoping you would make the decision."
Scott then explained to Danyka why this behavior was unacceptable and that Mommy and Daddy have the same rules. So if this is her thought process at four, I can only imagine life 10 years from now. She's one bright little girl.
