A Letter to My Daughter

Dear Hailie,

I know you are a big girl. I know you don’t like to take naps. However, your poor mother is exhausted today. Especially after you decided to wake up at 4am this morning and not go back to sleep until 5:30. Did you forget Grandma came over last night and you got to stay up late? You were up almost 3 hours past your bedtime!

Right now you are rubbing your eyes and are so tired. Please stop fighting Mom and take your nap. Pretty please with a cherry on top? I’m even letting you sleep in my bed!

Love you with all my heart,

P.S. – You were so adorable this morning when you dragged your blanket and laid down right outside our door. Let’s not make that a habit though. When your dad gets up at 3:30 in the morning he’s not entirely awake and I don’t want him to trip over you and hurt you.
