It never fails, just when its time for bed, one of my kids decides that its not. Then it becomes a power struggle to see who is going to win...mom, or kid. Usually its mom, because, well its MOM...but sometimes, I pick my battles. This little book reminded me of that little power struggle.
My daughter is very much like Brooklet, if shes not ready for bed, she will think of 101 things that she needs to do...and just like Brooklet, that usually included dressing up in something fun!
This was a really cute little story, that my daughter really liked. We read it every few nights...surprisingly, there is no power struggle when we read it! Maybe we should read it EVERY night!
