Mia has come up with an assortment of excuses why she can't go to bed, and recently, why she is up in the middle of the night. She's only 3, but she is a pro already. The sad thing is that they have all worked for her, so being a quick learner, she pulls them out whenever she thinks they might get her what she wants.
1) There's a ghost in my room.
2) I'm hungry.
3) I need my water bottle.
4) I have a snotty nose.
5) I have water in my eyes. (from crying because we aren't buying her lines)
6) I'm not really tired.
7) I want 5 more minutes.
8) I want to say night-night to everyone. (She forgot the dog or the wall, or something...)
9) I went pee-pee in my Pull-Up.
10) I heard a scary noise.
