|She always has to sleep with the most obnoxiously huge stuffed animals. I secretly love it.|

This girl of mine. I tell you, I don't know where she came from. No I lie, I know exactly where she came from. But she just surprises me all the time, you know? Like how for the last two weeks she has put herself to bed. For real. We have always had a pretty consistent bedtime of 9 pm. I know that is kind of late, but she is my company at night, and it works for us. But as of late, she has been coming up to me around 8:30 saying, "bed", and "sleepin'" while dragging me to her room by the hand. She probably just loves my singing voice so much that she can't wait any longer. No. That is definitely not it. But it is pretty funny. I think my favorite and least favorite part of putting her to bed is prayer time. I have been having her say her own little short prayers with assistance at night. She did pretty awesome at first. Now, we get through "Dear Heavenly Father" and then she closes her eyes and starts fake snoring and says, "shhh, sleepin'" until I finish her little prayer, and then she magically wakes up to say "amen!" I can't help but bust up laughing every time, which I fear is egging this whole thing on. But it is too dang funny.
