Woke up this morning to the sound of a door opening. Then quietly closing.
Then the loud tiptoe of a toddler. Down the hall. Down the stairs.
Then quiet. Too quiet.
Head down the stairs, no one in the living room.
"Hi Mommy!" from the kitchen.
"I don't want to go to bed. I want a popsicle so I get one from the fridge."
Lilypad Princess smiles at me with pink lips and waves the popsicle at me. I guess it's time for the big girl bed now.
