The girls have all been in bed for about an hour now.... Eva's resting peacefully clutching her plethora of afghans, Lily is snoring away with her legs hanging off the end of her bed, Anna laid quietly until I just now let her up to go water her flowerbox on her playhouse. And then there's Joelle. Who desperately needs a nap, because if she doesn't get one, will have a major meltdown shortly after dinner. As I tiptoe past the nursery and peek in on the two little ones, I'm surprised to see Joelle surrounded by her collection of stuffed elephants, smiling at me! "Honey, you really need to go to sleep!", I say in hushed tones. She grins and nods and whispers back, "Ok, but can I keep my eyes open?".
