Emma is really into playing house in a laundry basket lately. She will drag around a laundry basket, saying "House? House? House!", until I sit on the floor with her and place the laundry basket over our heads. We then enjoy tea parties and the singing of Let's Go Fly A Kite, which is her current favorite. I keep waiting for her to get bored with this game, but so far no luck.

Sometimes in the evening Steve and I will bring Emma into the bedroom and we'll lay there with her, hoping she'll go to sleep early for a change. This is always a mistake. Someone always falls asleep, leaving me to stay up with the kid, who does not. Tonight Steve has been asleep since 9:30 and I'm still up playing house with Emma, even though I desperately need to be sewing pants right now.

Maybe you should try harder to be the someone who falls asleep, genius.

Yeah, right. You've got to be kidding me. You obviously don't understand the way things work around here.
