A Bedtime Story

Sometimes, bedtime is the best time.
Tonight, as on most nights, putting my children in their beds didn't even come close to putting them to sleep.  Eventually, I went back into their room to do a final settle down, and was greeted by both girls begging me to, "Read book!  Read book!"

Instead, I told them a bedtime story.

Once upon a time, there were two little girls.  They loved to run and play, and to eat their dinners, and to take a bath.  One day they had played so much and had so much fun, they could hardly keep their eyes open.  So their mommy tucked them in, kissed them on the cheek, and on the nose, and told them how much she loved them.  And the little girls went to sleep.  And the next day, they did it all over again.  The end.

As I told them the story, I tucked them in.  I kissed them on the cheeks and on the nose.  And then I told them I loved them, said goodnight, and left the room.

They haven't made a peep since.

My fabled angels story ever.  :)
