overheard

This morning the girls are sitting at their little table in the family room playing with magnetic dress up dolls. Lydia is carrying on a running conversation for both of them about what the dolls are doing and where they are going. Then I hear....
Lauren: "Nigh-nigh"
Lydia: very excited that sis comprehends the pretend play, "Yes, Lauren! They are going night-night. That's right!"
...more talking....
Lauren: "Nigh-nigh"
Lydia: Right, Lauren. It's time for night-night.
...more talking...
Lauren: "Nigh-nigh"
Lydia: I know, Lauren. Yes!
...talking...
Lauren: "Nigh-nigh"
Lydia: losing patience, "Lauren, yes! Will you stop talking about night-night?"
Lauren: "Nigh-nigh"
Lydia: "Stop saying it Lauren! They already did sleep! Now they need to do something else."
Lauren: "Nigh-nigh".....
