Ushering the girls off to bed tonight (they share the same room), Julianna (8) wants to voice a complaint against her sister, Isabella (5).
J (whining): Daaad! Isabella always keeps the light on too late.
Iz: No, I don’t!
J: Yes she does, Daddy. She is interfering with my BS!
Me: Uhhh. (blink.)
J (giving a Eureka! finger-point): You know, BS… Beauty Sleep. And, you do NOT want to see me when I don’t have enough of my BS!
Me: Trust me, Honey. I think you’re shoveling plenty of BS right now.
J: But, the light…
Me: Now, go to bed. Lights out please.
Everyone: Good night.
