Bedtime is split up at our house.
Preston bathes and puts the boys to bed, while I handle Stella.
Well, Stella is starting to rebel against her parents plan.
She wants to do everything her brothers do and she wants to do it with them.
So at night when I try to give her a bath upstairs, she wants nothing more than to bathe with her brothers downstairs.
I wash her as fast as I can and jammy her up, then she is off to find them in the basement.
She rushes for the stairs and turns to make sure I'm not going to stop her plans.
Then she yells out "dada", trying to tell me exactly where she is going.
Then she slides down the steps with a smile on her face, realizing her mission will be accomplished.
She runs the entire length of the basement to arrive at her final goal...
And she's in heaven with her books...
And her boys...
And that makes for a good night.
