Oldest for the night

Zoe and Emily are staying at my parents' home tonight. That gives Eleanor free reign over her older sisters' toys! She has been in heaven. I could have skipped the Barbie play...actually I did because I needed to go water my newly planted wild flower seeds (that I have little faith will grow) so Matt played Barbies with Eleanor. That is one reason why Matt is the BEST husband ever.
Now it is 9:25pm and Eleanor has been to bed twice. The first time I got her out of bed because she was crying and said she wasn't tired, so I figured we could let her play a little longer and tire herself out. Well, I put her to bed at 9pm and she cried, but I said goodnight and left her bedroom. A few seconds later I hear a thump, and Eleanor comes walking into the living room. Hmmm...the crib confines her no more...I guess there is a positive side to this...we could put Zach in the crib now and move him out of our room :-)
