Just a frustrating cute little Ava antic:
Ava is a major bedtime staller these days. She likes to go to bed, then about 15-30 minutes later start making requests. Last night I was at the very end of my rope and not trusting myself not to freak out, I just let Ava knock and knock on her bedroom door hoping that she would get bored and go back to bed. This had been going on for a fair amount of time when Kurt got home from band practice. Before I even had a chance to explain I had to pee and as I headed to the bathroom I saw Kurt heading for her room. Too tired to warn him that she was just going to make some crazy request (more water in her already full water bottle, having to pee- though she’s wearing a diaper, forgot to brush her teeth or wash her hands— yeah right Ava, like you even care about those things…) I just said a little prayer for him, stifled a laugh and let him go. This is what I overheard:
Kurt: (standing at her door opened a crack) Hi Ava. What do you need?
Ava: I just have a question.
Kurt: Ok, what is it?
Ava: Well….(30 second pause)….. Daisy fell ……..(30 second pause)…….on my bed………
Kurt: (interrupting what could very feasibly have turned into a 10 minute “question”) Ava, that’s not a question.
Dani: (hardly containing my violent laughter in the hallway)
Kurt:(closes and locks door)
AND not another peep the rest of the night… gosh! if only I’d known it was that easy- though I couldn’t have done it with a straight face…
