Mom Award.

Tonight I should get an award.

We have been battling bedtime with Lucy. I usually lay with Lucy and read to her before leaving her room at night. After I leave, she visits our room at least 2-3 times that night. Each time she has a new excuse. "I have to go to the bathroom", "I'm thirsty" and my personal favorite "There is a monster in my room".

I guess I had enough tonight because tonight when I was leaving her room Lucy said, "mommy, there is a monster in my room." Now usually I will tell her there is no such thing as monsters, monsters aren't real, and I check her closet and I check under the bed so she knows there is no monster.

Well tonight was different. Lucy said, "mommy there is a monster in my room." (I know she knows there is no monster. This is a ploy to stay up later.) I turned to her and said, "Yes, Yes there is and if you get out of bed it's going to get you."


Like I said before I deserve an award. It may be a crap mom award but it's mine.

After I left Lucy and the monster in her room Jonathan looked at me and said, "You just crossed all sorts of lines." I forgot the baby monitor was on!

The End.
