Operation: Big Girl Bed (BGB) is so far from “mission accomplished”.  Two nights in a row, she goes to bed with no problems.  She lays down, goes to sleep, and we don’t hear from her ’til morning.  Last night, however?  Last night The Girl crept out of, and was escorted back to, her bed for three hours.

Petals: Hey Mommy!

Me: Hey, Petals.

Petals: This is my cat! (Holds up fur covered mechanical cat.) She’s fourteen!

Petals: Fourteen…no…no…Forty.

Me: Four-TEEN or FOUR-DEE?

Petals: Yes.  Forty.  I’m old.
