If you have been around us lately, you know Elmo is pretty important to Lillian. He usually sleeps in her room and frequently goes for a ride in the car. She buckles him in to his own seatbelt, of course. She has started to delay bedtime or naptime by calling for us. She uses various tactics and is very creative, I'll say. "I need covers, I don't need covers, Somebody's workin', It's raining." Last night, I was called in after I put her down. "Mama, Elmo won't stop talking and my still awake." I put Elmo on the floor. She leans over and says "Elmo, be quiet!" I had to talk with Elmo and review the "sleep rules". Finally, all was quiet.
