YOU KNOW DADDY PUT HER TO BED…

When you see the pajamas he let her sleep in!

Honestly, this is what I found when I went to check on Janie before going to bed after being at bookclub!

CONFIDENT WITH HIS MANHOOD

Only a boy with 3 sisters would pick an American Doll stroller as the main means of transportation for his Rescue Heroes!

I THINK THE BIRDS WERE EVEN SINGING!

It was strange…  I walked upstairs after sending the kids up to bed to get ready and remarked to myself that it was too quiet.  I paused first into Sam’s room and noticed he was almost  ready for bed.

I then crossed the hall into Elli’s room to find the room picked up and both my older girls ready for bed reading books together.

Entering Nevi’s room, I realized the girls had already put her pj’s on her an she was sitting on the floor reading a book by herself  (no picture.)

At that moment I knew that I was witnessing a historical, never to be repeated moment and I grabbed my camera to  capture the sweet scene.

I didn’t think it could get any better, until I realized that the background noise I had been hearing while taking the pictures was Nathan washing the dishes!  I am pretty sure there were some birds singing sweetly outside my window as well!
