One way in which she is able to delay her bedtime by several minutes is to request additional verses of her bedtime song (which we totally stole from Addie and her family, by the way). Usually we sing it to all the friends she has seen that day, and often her grandparents get a shout-out. And of course there is the obligatory verse each for Mommy and Daddy. But lately she has figured out she can sing this song to pretty much any person or object on earth. When I see her eyes starting to cast around her bedroom looking for items to sing to, I know it's time to pack it in and get the kid into her crib before we name every. single. object. in. the. universe.
Here's a small sampling of the things she deems worthy of their own special verse of the Night-Night Song:
Verse 1: Picures
Verse 2: Shirt
Verse 3: Firetruck
Practicing her latest stall technique in the car.
(Singing by Lilah, video by Mommy, driving by Daddy)
What is your kid's go-to stall technique? I'd love to hear all about it so I can see it coming and nip it in the bud!
