****When I received the tweet this morning (Saturday, the 24th) about someone's child reading their bedtime poem, it blew my mind somewhat. Seeing the reading-writing connection coming alive made me see that, perhaps, I had misplayed this weekend's challenge. So, freshly inspired, I have created a new, second post here. If possible, I would like my daughter, Leah, to read this new poem....just like PolysyllabicProfundities son did on hers. Bringing our words to life is a wonderful thing. Please check out the original video on my new post.

This weekend's Trifextra challenge is to write a bedtime story. My story is not so much a story for bed but, rather, about going to bed. Every parent who reads this should be able to associate with the exasperated feelings that come from having had a long day, being completely exhausted and then, at bedtime, your child just won't go to sleep so that you can finally get a little down time yourself. To everyone who has fallen asleep before your child has.....this is for you! Enjoy. :)
"But, I'm not tired."
"Well, it's bedtime!
You either lay here in the darkness or head off to glorious Dreamland.
But, .........it......is........ BEDTIME!"
Two hours later........
"Mommy! I'm still not tired!"
