Muscle Fairy

Okay, so because it's gotten lighter later at night, I've been having a harder time getting Caleb to go to bed, stay in bed, and fall asleep at a decent hour. That kid has will power and there have been several nights when it's been close to my bedtime (10:30pm) and I can still hear him- either singing softly to himself or he's snuck out toys and is playing with them incognito in his room. So last night, after I was tired of dealing with a "grump"- I had to think of a new tactic.

Thus, the "Muscle Fairy" was born which by the way only visits little boys when they fall asleep. To my surprise and amazement, Caleb fell asleep rather quickly and first thing in the morning I caught him posing in the bathroom. When I asked him what he was doing. He replied, "I'm looking at my big muscles I got last night."

Do you think every white lie a mom tells get's tallied in heaven? If so,... I'm a gonner.

If those kind of white lies are tallied, all of us "Moms" are goners Carrie. Guess we'll be hanging out together in you know where....If you're there, can't be all that bad, lol.

I LOVED the "muscle fairy" idea. Maybe I'll have to try "princess fairy" on Kaylee. She sneaks her toys out too. We think she's sleeping, but she's actually playing, just like Caleb. :)

p.s. I love having your blog up cause you always have good music. Sometimes I'll just leave it up as my background music while I'm on the computer!
