So, no matter when we put Little Miss to bed, she falls asleep at 9PM. One time, we didn't put her to bed and, at 9PM, she just got changed and put herself to bed. Tonight, at 8:45PM, Little Miss was cuddling with Husband on the couch. She jumps up and says "it's getting late, I need to go to bed." She runs into her room, turns off the light, turns on her music and gets into bed. Wacky kid.

On Saturday, I met with friends for book club. It was a nice lunch and conversation - with a little talk of the book. I went grocery shopping after that and then had a quiet night at home.

Little Miss went to bed under protest tonight. She went very unwillingly but went through the motions. Then, as soon as bedtime arrived, so did a thunderstorm. (Actually, both things are still simultaneously happening.) So, she called for Daddy because he's a bigger pushover at bedtime. However, he was also cooking dinner so he only attended to the first round of grievances. Then, usually we ignore her. I heard the thunder rumbling and her whimpering so I went in to give hugs. At this point, I noticed she wasn't whimpering, she was just plain whining. I could see in her face she was exhausted. She was rubbing her eyes and yawning... but whining. So, I told her if she didn't settle down, I was going to leave because I didn't come in there to hear her whine. She looked at me and said, "I don't want to settle down. Leave." When I didn't leave, she sat up, pointed to the door and said, "Leave!" So, I did.
Funny but in the seconds since I left the room, it's been silent from her room and I bet anything she just rolled over and went to sleep. Should have just stuck with my usual routine of ignoring her. That'll teach me to be nice during a thunderstorm.
On Sunday, Mom and Sister came over for brunch and Husband made us pancakes and bacon. Then, Mom, Sister, and I went to The Kennedy Center to see Wicked. It was a lot of fun. After the play, Husband, Little Miss and I met the In-Laws and Nephew at a local carnival where Little Miss rode the Merry-Go-Round, motorcycles and boats. Then, she played a carnival game and we left. It was very hot. We drove a little ways and got some ice and custard at Rita's. We got home late, but everybody had a good afternoon and a great weekend.
On Sunday, we went to a carnival (more during the weekend update), but here are two videos of Little Miss enjoying herself on both the train (with Mother-in-Law and Nephew) and on the boats. I don't know where she thought she was steering, but she was steering that boat like it was her job.

My goal to have Little Miss sing Firework on video didn't pan out, but I'm not giving up. Either way, Friday and Saturday were spent cleaning or at least cleaning up. On Saturday, we had friends over for dinner and had a nice evening. Little Miss received a present from the newlyweds and spent Monday night decorating (video below with a picture of the final product).
