Reading Fun

Katy's favorite book is "Bears in the Night." She likes to read along with her daddy before bedtime. She has reached the age where everything dark or dark-related is scary. She has trouble falling asleep and needs reassurance almost daily.

Today was a rather unusual day. After Katy got home from the daycare, she played with her Princesses stuff. Not long afterwards, she put everything away (what a good girl) and told her mom she needed a bath because she was very tired. This was the first time she requested a bath; she usually puts out a fight when we tell her it is time for bath.

There was this one afternoon a few months ago (probably in the summer) that she told her mom she was going to take a nap, and she walked to her bedroom with a book under her arm. You could hear her reading the book in the bedroom but pretty soon it was all quiet. She never did that again.

She went to bed about 7:30 tonight. We only spent an hour and half with her today. Because her mom started a new job, we were trying out a new schedule today. Katy has been going to bed pretty late recently. Last night she didn't fall asleep well past 10 (we did spend a lot of time with her though). She got up at 8 this morning. Not enough sleep for this little girl. We are hoping to get her to bed early so she can get up early and spend time with us in the morning. We really don't like to rush her in the morning.
