Dubbin go nite, nite

Note: My daughter’s name is Dublin, she can only say Dubbin

You never know how true that saying is, ‘kids say the darnedest things’, until you hear your own child say ‘the darnedest things’. My lil one never fails to make me laugh in something she says or does. The other night was a late night, as it had been a really busy day. I was letting her finish her dinner while I read the newspaper. I guess she was done and ready for bed when she says, ‘Dubbin, go to sleep, nite nite’. Then she makes this cute snoring noise and holds her arms out to me. I couldn’t help but laugh. I got her washed up and put to bed with no problems.

The previous night was a different story however. I had put her to bed, kissed her, and told her nite, nite, as I always do. I went to the living room to catch up on some reading. About two minutes later I start to hear muffled voices. Placing the book marker into my book, I get up, walk towards her room. I can see her bedroom light shining under her door as if it was daylight out, although it was eight o’clock at night. I open the door to see her jump into her bed. She had turned her TV on as well as the light.

I turn the light and TV off, tucking her back into bed, tell her nite, nite…again. The second time I heard her chair hit against the wall a little too hard as she used it to turn on her light. Putting my book down, I go back into her room and tell her that it isn’t play time, it’s night time.

The third time, I tuck her back into bed, unplugged the TV, and took the chair out of the room with me. It was quiet until about one o’clock in the morning. She usually wakes now and then in the middle of the night. I hold her for a few minutes, give her a sip to drink, then put her back to bed.

Some nights she’s easy to get to bed, but the other nights are similar to the one described above. That is the first time she’s played with the TV, most of the time it’s toys that make noise.
