I took a shower after I put Ella to bed tonight and when I got out I could hear her still awake and talking in her bed. This isn't unusual at all, it usually takes her a long time to fall asleep. But what was interesting was how steadily she was 'reading' and I listened to her 'read' for about 5 minutes straight, talking the entire time.
Then she sighed, and said "I'm tired now. Let me go to bed. Good night everyone." and then it was silent!
It's like she was just talking a mile a minute, got suddenly exhausted, and had to tell her friends in bed that she was done for the night. She is so silly!!
