Bedtime Routine

Every night, before going to bed, Lil Sippy Cup asks me to scratch his back. 

I know that it relaxes him and helps him fall asleep so I willingly oblige.

Lately though, like most things, he has been taking his requests a bit too far.

Lil Sippy Cup: "Daddy, scratch my back..."

Me: "Okay."

Lil Sippy Cup: "Daddy, scratch my arm..."

Me: "Okay."

Lil Sippy Cup: "Daddy, scratch my leg..."

Me: "Okay but you need to fall asleep."

Lil Sippy Cup (sleepily) : "Daddy, do you love me?"

Me: "Of course I love you."

A few seconds of silence...

Lil Sippy Cup: "Daddy...scratch my butt..."

Me: "Aaaand there it is.  Go to sleep."

Lil Sippy Cup (falling asleep): "Ha...ha..."
