She's smarter than her father

The other night I had a PTA meeting (yes, I still haven't quite escaped). I pulled into the driveway at 9:15 pm. As I walked up the house steps I noticed David was asleep on the love seat. 

Abby was awake laying on the couch.

Me: Um...dear? Your bedtime is 8pm. 
Abby: Well Daddy didn't put me to bed.

Me: What were you watching?
Abby: Buying Hawaii, it's actually pretty interesting.

Me: .......
Abby: I knew if I changed the station Daddy would wake up

I wasn't quite sure if I should punish her (or her father) for staying up past her bedtime or admire that she was smart enough how to accomplish it.


  1. Hahaha!! Smart girl. Reminds me of when I was a kid. My three siblings and I were never more well behaved than Sunday mornings. We knew if we were quiet, our parents would sleep in and we wouldn't have to go to church. :)

  2. Admire her. Isaac has a gift of coming up with the most incredible excuses for why he does (or does not) do something. I am in such awe of the words coming out of his mouth (remember, he is three) that I find it hard to get on to him (sometimes; he doesn't get away with everything). :)

  3. Ha! I remember watching something I wasn't interested in just to stay up longer! Funny!

  4. Ha! Abby is a smart girl - be impressed and a little scared.


Thanks for stopping by and letting me know what you think!
