madelynn, yelling from her bed long after lights out: "mommmmmy! daddy home?"
me (slightly irritated at a 3 year old who refused a nap earlier today and has been laying in bed thinking of new ways to keep baby brother awake for eternity): "no madelynn... go to sleep."
madelynn (in her best pouty voice): "oh man. daddy's not home. you're doing dishes. i just have to stay in bed allllllll bymyself. humph!!"
i think i even heard her arms cross on the "humph!" i didn't know weather to burst into hysterical laughter or go crawl in bed with her. the girl steals my heart, i tell ya!
