nighty night

So often I've heard parents say that what works for one kid won't work for another. That has been illustrated by the fact that Violet finds a bath, massage, and book to be the most stimulating series of activities known to man. Perhaps before bedtime we should play some Sousa and march around the house eating coffee beans.

What a cutie! Mine is like that with the bath...but she will fall asleep in the shower! Go figure, right?

Gillibean used to fall asleep in the shower. But now she's too big to hold in the shower. Believe me. I tried on Sunday and it was almost a disaster.

it takes an act of congress for violet to go to sleep. and i think my baby must be a runt.

gone said...

Well, I expect congress to act soon on this nomination confirmation, so...maybe you'll get a lucky ten minutes of rest!

sweetviolet said...

i have concluded that she is a runt. she is in the fifth percentile for weight, and below the 3rd for height. conor, we've birthed a midget.

gone said...

Wow, Gillian is almost off the charts. Who cares, though? They all even out by kindergarden anyway.

sweetviolet said...

she's lost weight, its all that crawling...but boy is she shrimpy. your baby could kick my baby's butt.

Sarah, no offense, but did you seriously think you were going to have a child of height???? Honestly...

gone said...

HA!! Shorty!

sweetviolet said...

...sarah is grumbling under her breath.

sweetviolet said...

my momma said the same thing, only she was NICE! harumph.

SheeniSaunders said...

as we have all discussed before, momma turner is a saint. I am not.

sweetviolet said...

mmmm....there may be certain prerequesites for sainthood that you have.

SheeniSaunders said...

;)

I cannot say that I am surprised the child is wee. I knew I was dooming my children to be shrimpy when I married Sarah.
