Uh, what just happened?

Anya just kicked me out of her room so she could go to sleep.

It was weird.

I was going through her bedtime routine as usual. I read her Goodnight Moon and halfway through she told me to put on the music instead. As she turned to lie on my shoulder she asked for a paci, and I told her she could have one when she went into the crib. She promptly sat up, told me she was all done, that I should turn the music off, and she wanted her crib. Skeptical, I asked if she was sure. Her response? “Bye-bye Mommy!” She practically jumped out of my arms into the crib and settled herself with a paci in her mouth and another in her hand. I asked if she wanted me to cover with her blanket, and she said yes. I asked if I should turn on her turtle aquarium, and she said yes. I said goodnight and left, and I haven’t heard a peep out of her since!

Has anyone seen my baby? When did she grow up?

    Sunrise, sunset… Sunrise, sunset
    Swiftly flow the days,
    Seedlings turn overnight into sunflowers,
    Blossoming even as we gaze.

    When did she get to be a beauty?
    When did he get to be so tall?
    Wasn’t it yesterday
    When they were small?

    I have to stop typing this song which always has this effect on me…before I cry!

    Daisy has been doing the same thing to me the last two nights! She tells me “night night!” and snuggles down into her blankets. She wants two stories, one song, and then for me to get my butt out of the room!

    Grammy – We’ll send you a box of tissues. Is the supermarket brand okay, or do you need Kleenex?

    Amnesty – For several days she had us skip the routine altogether just so she could get into the crib with the pacis. The last two or three days she’s needed more help going to sleep though – and she’s been getting up SO early. Grrr.
