Mommy...what if a monster is in here?
No monster would come in here, they're too scared of your bears...plus I don't let monsters in the house.
But Mommy...what if a crocodile comes in?
Crocodiles need lots of water...there isn't lots of water here so crocodiles won't come in here either.
Mommy...can Maggie (grandpa's dog) come in here?
Nope, sorry, I think Grandpa would miss her too much.
Mommy...can you stay in here and sleep with me?
No, I have my own bed to sleep in.
But, why not? It is fun to sleep in here.
I'm sure it would be, but I need to sleep in my bed.
Okay, but can you sing me one more song?
Sure! [song is sung] Now, goodnight Lukey...sweet dreams & I'll see you in the morning.
I'm loving this age right now [even more so once he finally decides to use the potty all of the time, but that's a topic for another day ;)], especially at bedtime. He seems to finally have settled into what his bedtime routine should be & for the most part, doesn't have to get up 1,000+ times in the process anymore. He's just always looking for one more reason to keep us in there with him, yet still goes with the flow of the reasons why we won't/can't. He's definitely growing into a sweet little guy. :)
