The Bedtime Routine

Every night when David goes to bed there is this little routine he goes through. First he picks out his CD of music he wants to listen to. Then we have to look for the remote control to the player. Often times it ends up on the floor under his bed if I haven't pried it from his hand after he's fallen asleep clutching it the night before and put it back on his night table. I usually have to remind him to put his knees down when I pull the covers up while he holds his hands up in the air. Of course then there is the inevitable request: "Water!" But lastly there is the call out, "I want Maggie!". Now usually she's in the hallway stretched out at the top of the stairs. Long ago she caught on to this routine and the minute she'd hear the call and see me exit his room to get her she'd slowly rise as I started to approach and then head for under the dinning room table. Over and over again we'd tell David, quiet she hears her name, and she runs away. We know what you want. Well, the other night I guess he finally got the message after Paul tucked him in he called out, "I want her!".
