Bed Time with Daddy

Last night, I had to stay in the office till late due to a video conferencing session scheduled from 6-10pm. I asked hubby to take over my nightly routine of letting Elyssa sleep. I was a little worried since the few times that hubby tried, she just cried and cried.

Anyway, the session finished earlier than expected and I reached home slightly before 10pm. When I got out from my car, it was quiet and I thought- "Good- Elyssa is not crying". As I climbed the staircase, I could hear hubby playing computer games. And I thought - "Oh Good, Elyssa must be fast asleep already".

But then when I opened the room door, I saw this -

Happily watching daddy play computer games:

***!!???? Hubby said that Elyssa wouldn't stop crying when he tried to make her sleep. The only way he could pacify her was to let her see the computer screen while he played games.

So I brought Elyssa to the master room to let her sleep. After > 15 minutes of tossing and turning (difficult for her to sleep since it was past her bed time) I gave up and asked hubby to take over since I was starving. Already 10+pm and I haven't had dinner yet. I quickly ate some bread and removed my contact lenses. No sound from Elyssa and when I checked I saw this -

Happily eating bread while watching cartoons on the tv :

I brought her upstairs again and luckily she fell asleep pretty quick.
Elyssa must be thinking that bed time with daddy sure is fun ...... can watch computer games, eat bread and watch cartoon!!!
