The other night I had a PTA meeting (yes, I still haven't quite escaped). I pulled into the driveway at 9:15 pm. As I walked up the house steps I noticed David was asleep on the love seat.
Abby was awake laying on the couch.
Me: Um...dear? Your bedtime is 8pm.
Abby: Well Daddy didn't put me to bed.
Me: What were you watching?
Abby: Buying Hawaii, it's actually pretty interesting.
Abby: I knew if I changed the station Daddy would wake up
I wasn't quite sure if I should punish her (or her father) for staying up past her bedtime or admire that she was smart enough how to accomplish it.
