Thursday Therapy: I couldn't go to bed...

It has been a LONG time since I have seen "My Fair Lady," but I still know every word to every song. In fact, I think the last time I watched it was when I FORCED Tyler to watch it after Emree was born. I knew it was a must see and that his life would not, could not, be complete with out experiencing it. ANYWAYS.... One of my favorite scenes is when she is floating all the way to get ready for bed and singing "bed, bed, I couldn't go to bed, my heads to light to try to set it down...." This happened at our house last night... sort of.

Emree wasn't floating, she was kicking, jerking, biting.
Emree wasn't singing, she was screaming.
"I can't close my eyes, they are too open!"

Now, normally this wouldn't be a problem. She would go to bed regardless and it would only take a few more minutes because it usually means she is over tired and just needs to hold still for one second to fall asleep, BUT I had a meeting and so I left her up to watch "Pocahontas." When everyone had left and it was time for bed once more she was completely distraught. She cried, "BUT MOM, you said I didn't have to go to bed tonight. I promise I will tomorrow." What a sad misinterpretation of my actions. I had to explain that we go to bed EVERY night. Hmm My Fair Little Lady.
