Dear Lex'

I admire your skill;
I really do.
Your amazing ability to resist sleep at all costs,
while nothing new,
is admirable.
When you are a momma
it will certainly come in handy.
But you are not a momma yet
and so this skill of yours is rather frustrating.
I don't mind so much at naptime,
but at bedtime,
it makes me more than a little antsy.
You see,
Momma still has lots to get done
- after you go to sleep -
before I can go to sleep.

I knew you'd understand, once we had this little chat.
I love you, Lexi, goodnight.
So far,
Operation Bedtime
has been a flop.
