Bedtime Stories

There is an amusing irony, a conflict of interests, in reading to my children before bed. I want them to fall asleep, but they want to hear the rest of the story.

I have convinced my 4 year old to let me read him The Hobbit by changing Bilbo's name to that of his favorite stuffed animal. Well, great, only now he listens with rapt attention. Last night I read for two hours, and he still wasn't asleep. Finally I went and got myself a midnight snack, and by the time I got back, he was out.
