The Tortoise and the Hare


Tonight, Marc put the DD to bed without me as I was on a conference call. I kissed them both and told Katie Starr that I would come in after my call to kiss her again as she always stays up for at least an hour talking in her bedroom before falling asleep. Ethan, on the other hand falls asleep within 5 minutes of hitting the bed, every single night without fail.

The call ended about 15 minutes after they had gone to bed and as I was walking down the hall towards their room I could hear Katie singing songs as usual. I entered and talked to her a bit and then I said to her "Look at your brother; he always falls asleep so fast; isn't that amazing?" to which she replied "Yes mommy, Ethan falls asleep like a bunny and I fall asleep like a turtle."

This kid floors me sometimes! How the heck did she draw that analogy already? Wish me luck as she grows up as it is going to be hard to stay a step ahead of her..LOL

You have quite a smart miss there. Now if we could only fix that I wake up like a snail.

Lori, I am just waiting for new math. I still have not figured out old math, so I figured instead of helping Kerri with homework, she will just have to teach me!
Our kids are brilliant. And they keep us on our toes!

Katie Starr is definitely going to keep you on your toes. She's always coming out with such smart little quips. Ask her who falls asleep slower than the turtle. That would be Erin!

Oh you are in such trouble!!

Ah, you've got to admire that smart little brain!!! I have a feeling that you'll be able to handle Miss Starr as she grows, though. You're one smart Mama!
