Addicted

Tonight was like most nights, I tucked Ben and Toby in 3 different times after many requests for things that just delayed the inevitable: bedtime.

So, when I heard Ben's little footsteps walk slowly from his bedroom to the top of the stairs where he said the usual, "MO-OM?" I took a deep breath and said, "Whaaaat Ben?" expecting him to ask for another drink of water or to be tucked in tighter.

But to my surprise he asked this: "How do you stop being addicted to Star Wars?"

How does it get any cuter than that (remember, he's 4)? But then when I told him that he just has to watch it less and less every day,he said:

"Okay...did you hear that Toby?"

And then he got back in bed.

The first step is recognizing you have a problem.

glad to hear your evenings are exactly the same as ours, except tonight during the 2 hour bedtime process Shane was pissed because, "why do YOU get to sleep with daddy in YOUR bed, huh?! i don't get to sleep with anybody in my bed so that's not fair!"

Matias asked for Star Wars last night for the first time. I'm not even sure how he knows about it.
then again this morning. Thanks to your blogs I'm prepared for the "addiction"
