I beg and I plead~ Post It Note Tuesday


  1. Those post-its totally cracked me up: "I'm NOT trying to trick you!" I used to think my Mom was up so some shady tricks trying to get me to go to sleep.

  2. haha it IS pure torture to put the kids to bed when it's still light out - thankfully we only have 1 week left of school so only a few more nights of "hell" lol!

  3. It's impossible to get your kids to sleep when it's still light outside. Especially if they can hear the neighbor kids outside. What's wrong with those neighbors? Should't their kids be in bed too???

  4. Yeah I have been there myself, now I go to bed before my kids do. HA!

  5. LOL I so understand this one! Jason is already arguing with me. Long summer coming!

  6. Oh, the long summer days!

    My boys go to bed early- like 6:30-7. So, there's still a lot of sunlight left.

  7. Bed In Summer
    by Robert Louis Stevenson

    In winter I get up at night
    And dress by yellow candle-light.
    In summer, quite the other way,
    I have to go to bed by day.

    I have to go to bed and see
    The birds still hopping on the tree,
    Or hear the grown-up people's feet
    Still going past me in the street.

    And does it not seem hard to you,
    When all the sky is clear and blue,
    And I should like so much to play,
    To have to go to bed by day?

  8. Nice! I haven't had these conversations yet, but I am sure that we are getting there! Happy PINT.

  9. LOL, I have so been there. It did seem so unfair as a child. I only wish that having to go to bed when the sun is still up was my biggest problem. :)

  10. Cute!! I Hate those long bright nights trying to get the kids to sleep - as IF!
    It's WINTER down here at the bottom of the world in New ZEaland, so we get dark nice and early. That's the upside of rain and cold I guess :)

    Happy SITS day :)

  11. hahahahaha This is hilarious! I'm a new follower!

  12. haha! I always love reading people's Post It Notes. My favorite is "Fine, keep your eyes open. Just go to sleep!" That cracked me up. Congratulations on your SITS today. Today is a special day for both of us! Your SITSday my birthday. Lol. Enjoy! :D

  13. Love the Post It Notes! I remember having to go to bed with the sun still up. It was torture!!

    Congrats on your SITS day!

  14. Wow, it sounds like you have been in my house!! Hate these long summer days some times.

  15. It weird how the post-it notes remind me of me and my cats. Very good read.

  16. Hilarious! Does it help that this is a conversation being had in bedrooms across the world?
    Probably not.......
    Happy Sits Day!

  17. Happy SITS Day!! What a great blog! I know it can be confusing going to sleep when the sun is still out! He, he, he! I am following you now! Come visit Mama's Little Chick when you get a chance.

  18. Glad I'm not the only one who makes my kid go to bed when it's still light out. Invest in a room darkening blind or just really heavy curtains. Works wonders.

    Happy SITS day!

  19. I know exactly what you mean. I lived your life and I survived.

  20. ohmygoodness, this was so cute!!! i was just wondering the other day how my baby (when she is more grown) will ever want to go to bed when it's still light out!!! Right now she's 20months and we just have dark curtains in her room.....maybe she'll never realize the difference if we just keep those curtains ha?! LOL.

  21. It doesn't get dark until 10:30 here! We bought thick curtains! Good luck!
