Sleepy

A: (From her bed) “Mommy, I sleepy.”

Mommy: “Well, go to sleep then A.”

Pause.

A: “Oh. But Mommy, I sleepy.”

Mommy: “I know, so go to sleep.”

A: “Oh. Kay. But I sleepy Mommy.”

C: (From his room) : “A, just go to sleep! The whole world knows you’re sleepy!”

A: “How sleep?”

And that folks, is the irony of my life. The child is tired, knows she is tired, but has no idea how to fall asleep or stay asleep.
