Weekly Photo Challenge: Distorted

Weekly Photo Challenge: Distorted

On Friday Ivy didn’t want John to put her to bed, she wanted me to do it. John gave Ivy a very polite explanation of why he would be taking over the bedtime routine for the weekend.  They counted the days of the week that John worked as he pointed out that I get to put the girls to bed four nights a week while John only gets three. They talked about the days of the week some more and concluded with the fact that John would be putting them to bed Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

On Saturday night John made the get ready for bed announcement and Ivy said “But I want Mom to put me to bed.” and John patiently talked through the whole thing with her again.

On Sunday night it happened again.

On Monday afternoon John said goodbye to the girls on the way out the door and Ivy burst out with, “BUT DAD, I want YOU to put me to bed tonight!”

John laughed.

I laughed harder.

Ivy wanted to know why.

Life through the eyes of a five year old- it’s distorted.

    Sweet closeup of a beautiful eye! Duh! All 5 yr olds want the one who’s NOT putting them to bed to put them to bed! Nothing new there…..she’ll have to come up with something better than that!

      Well did you know come “play with me” upstairs while I string beads on a necklace actually means just sit and watch. No talking to her, no helping her, no stringing beads on a different string next to her, no taking pictures…. Weird, but it beats making horses talk!

  5. I love your picture. Even being such a close up it still catches the fresh, innocent appraisal that you find in a child’s eyes. Great pic.

    Thanks for your comment on my daffodils.
    I love them too! They are just the best, aren’t they? They are so generous!
