Maybe the Secret is that Mommy Whispers Too Much

Tonight, my husband took over putting our daughter to bed. She cried for me, but he told her I would only come after she had stayed in bed for awhile. After she was calmed down and in bed, I came in. As soon as he left, she started talking to me about her day. And I realized, I usually whisper something in response. So of course she's staying up later to talk. Tonight, I told her it was time to sleep and we would talk about it tomorrow at breakfast. She was good with that and five to ten minutes later, she was asleep. Yeah!

Now, let's see if mommy can keep her mouth shut tomorrow night.
