Good Night!

As the weekend drew to a close, I made my best effort to get everyone to bed at a reasonable time. I asked them earlier in the day to make sure they had their school things together – folders and library books in their backpacks as tomorrow is library day. If I said this once, I said it a dozen times.

The kids took their showers early. I bribed them told them if they picked up all of their things that they had scattered all over the floor, we could play a game of Uno. I again reminded them to make sure they had their library books in their backpacks. I didn’t want any delays in the morning.

We managed to play several games of the card game, before I declared it bedtime.

“Everyone go to the restroom, and brush your teeth.”

Now, you would think, eventually I wouldn’t have to provide this public service announcement.

But, then again…

Griffin came out of the bathroom.

“Did you brush your teeth?”

“Oh, was I supposed to do that?”

Yes, dear. We brush our teeth twice a day. Always have. Always will.

After a nightly prayer I proceeded to tell my children good night. I was standing in the boys’ room, so they were first. I then made my way to Ruthie’s room when I spotted them – library books on her bedside table.

Good Night!

Only At My House,
