Twinkle twinkle little star, how I wonder why you're up at 3:30am...

At 3:40am last night, I was awoken by the sound of someone moving the stepstool in the hall bathroom. Knowing it was obviously Caroline, I laid there and listened to hear if she was using the potty thinking how proud of her I was going to be for getting up to go. But instead of hearing pee sounds, I hear her LOUDLY singing, "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star." Knowing EXACTLY what she was doing, I headed for her room. There she was singing the final line of the song, the shade pulled up, sitting on her stool looking out the window singing.

"Caroline, what are you doing??"

"Mommy, the clouds went away and I can see the stars now!"

"Caroline, it's the middle of the night, you don't need to look at the stars."

"I made a wish mommy, the stars are out!"

"Get in bed, it's sleepy time."

She hopped back into bed - she was FULLY awake and I told her she needed to go back to sleep, which she proceeded to do.

I just don't get it. But I guess life is too exciting for her to be sleeping sometimes and if the stars and moon call you, you just have to get up and sing to them.
