Night Vision

After tucking Amanda in bed, she came back out ...

Amanda: Mom, can I get my night goggles?

Me: Sure.

Henry: Night goggles?

Me: Yeah.

Henry: Looks at me with raised eyebrows.

Me: Oh! No, not like night vision ... it's a sleep mask.

'Cuz sleep masks are normal for 9 year olds to wear to bed. Night vision goggles would just be weird.


  1. Tami! My Bean wears one every nite! She's 7. She can't fall asleep without it. She got it at her cousins slumber party last year and the thing has never left her bedside. She actually now has two for rotation purposes.

  2. No kidding?! So this is normal nowadays for 7 & 9 year olds? Go figure. I thought they were only used by celebrities. And to think that your Bean has TWO. Wow.

  3. Actually, I think it's just unique to my daughter and yours. My Bean is just weird that way...
