Colleen: Okay, you two, it’s time to go beddy-bye.

Baby: No!

Colleen: Yes, let’s get your jammies on. You can keep your binkie for now. Your blankie is already in your bed and it’s time to go night-night.

Baby: Potty!

Colleen: Okay, once you have your jammies on, we’ll go potty. What’s the matter, Mark?

Baby: Owie!

Colleen: You have an owie? Where? In your tummy? Oh, you have a boo-boo on your finger. No, don’t stick your wet finger in your brother’s ear. That’s icky. Wait one teensy-weensy minute and I’ll put a band-aid on it.

Baby: Whee!

Colleen: Michael, you can’t jump off the chair like that. That’s a no-no. Oopsie-daisy!

Baby: Waaaaa!

Michael had learned his lesson and so had I!
