Here's something no mother wants to hear ...

I sent Babycakes upstairs after dinner.  She was supposed to put her pjs on, brush her teeth and get into bed.  She has been asking to sleep with me every other night since Lawyer is gone.  At first I declined but I finally figured life is short and why not!

She calls down to me from the back stairs a minute ago and reported this ...

"I was waiting for you to tuck me in and I was making a drawing for you.  I had a marker but now I lost it in your bed.  I have the top in my hand but I can't find the bottom."


My oldest looked at me and simply said ... "that won't be too hard to find ... just look for the big spot of ink".

Even better.

I'm off to survey the damage.
