Which is aka "total sucker".
Oh, you didn't know that?
Well, Isabella did.
And she still does.
Leo knows this, too.
As he is the one who came up with this new name for me.
You may be thinking why.
This is why:
The time: Every nite, 7:30-8'ish.
The location: Isabella's crib
What's thrown down: Momma and Daddy lay Miss Bella down. No biggie. Give her kisses. She's happy. May play the wave game (which, by the way, is so.much.fun! I love my little girl. And I LOVE her sense of humor). It's all good.
Next scene: 20 minutes have passed. Isabella is up talking, giggling, playing in her crib. Total sucker (me) goes in. Bella gets excited. Gives momma a few claps and happy hollers. Momma is so struck by the lack of exhaustion that she decides that Miss Bella gets to come out and play.
This continues until Bella starts getting grouchy.
Then total sucker (me) realizes I should have just let her stay where she was happy. And more quiet.
I am now trying to break this "game".
