The stubborn tired girl

It's not shocking with a dad like Michael, that Claire is not the biggest fan of sleeping. When she is tired, it takes her a long time to give into the fatigue (unless she's in the car or the chariot on a bike ride). There have been many occasions where we try forever to put her down without success, so we just carry on about the day, and this is what ends up happening...




The other night, after about 1.5 hours of trying to get her to go to sleep, we finally let her out of her crib to run off some energy. About 5 minutes later, we notice that it's really quiet. Michael goes into her room to find her laying on her floor. As soon as she sees him, she starts talking to him like she's not tired at all. So he puts her back into her bed and she's standing up along the rail and then puts her head on the rail and closes her eyes. As soon as Michael sees that, he lays her down again, where she starts talking again about iggle piggle and upsy daisy. So, he takes her out and lets her go and again about 5 minutes later, it's really quiet, so I go into her room and find this...


Finally, she was done!
