When hubby does bedtime it takes FOREVER. He has added ten unnecessary steps to the routine and he’s such a softie when it comes to going back into their room. The girls know that I won’t come back for just any reason, and when I leave and turn off the lights, that is IT. But S, being almost 4, is a keen stall-artists. Tonight, while hubby was at the gym, I was solo on bed time duty. After I tucked S and H in and came downstairs…
S: Mommy! Mommy! Mommy!
Me (from the bottom of the stairs): Yes?
S: Mommy! I have a question.
S: I was wondering… can sand turn into wet sand?
Me: Yes, when you mix sand with water, it turns into wet sand.
S: Oh. Okay. Good night.
I couldn’t help but smile. And that was the last I heard for the night.
