From the mouths of babes

I overheard Lily scolding one of her baby dolls this morning, and it turned into one of those moments that I had to write down immediately …

Me: Hey there, why don’t you try to talk to your baby more gently, maybe give her a hug?

Lily: Well, I’m mad at her because she’s not napping and she’s being bad so she has to take three naps today.

Me: Oh. Okay. Well, when she wakes up, maybe you could be extra sweet to her?

Lily: Her second nap will be better because she didn’t sleep much in her first nap.

Me: How do you know that?

Lily: I’m just a mom.

  6. haha! go lily. i particularly like the ‘nap as punishment’ angle. i wish i was forced to nap 3 times a day. i would never behave, just to guarantee it.
