Mama Error # 352,427: Do Not Do Exhausting Things Early In The Day And Then Try To Skip Nap

Maggie to Mama: I night nights, Mama.
Mama: Hmm? Wait, what?
Maggie:(dreamily) Night nights, Mama.
Mama: No! Oh, no! It's 4:45! If you go to sleep now, you'll never go to bed tonight! No night nights!
Maggie: Night nights.
Mama: Maggie? Maggie! Don't go to sleep, Maggie!
Maggie: I sleeping.
Mama: Let's read a book! Let's take a bath! Let's throw the ball or try on shoes or blow bubbles or eat a cracker or ... dear God Maggie please do NOT go to sleep! Maggie?
Maggie: zzz.
Mama: Oh no.

Thanks for not mentioning who was responsible for the Exhausting Things Early in the Day part.

I know of this error, far too well. There was, however, the one and only time when Mason crashed at 5:30pm from exhausting day and slept until 7:30am. Unheard of!
