100+ days into quarantine life and we’ve watched all eight seasons of “Kids Baking Championship.” Isabelle has made “Chopped Junior” her new pre-bedtime show. Personally, I don’t like “Chopped Junior” (nor am I a fan of “Chopped” for that matter) anywhere near as much as “Kids Baking Championship” so I often do something on my laptop while she watches.
I was in the midst of redesigning Two Writing Teachers this evening when I noticed I hadn’t heard her say anything for five minutes. I looked to my right and this is what I saw:
Once I realized Isabelle’s eyes were closing, I encouraged her to get up and go to sleep.
“So cozy,” she muttered.
“I know you’re cozy, but I can’t lift you. I need you to go into your bed.”
She rolled onto her right side, away from me, and said, “So so cozy.”
“You’ll be cozy in your own bed too,” I replied.
After another minute of the back-and-forth cozy banter, I managed to get her out of my bed and down the hall.
Perhaps I need to find a show we both enjoy so this doesn’t happen again.

I fully understand her feelings of too cozy to make the move she needs to make! I love a good cooking show, but I am limited in what I get to watch here. My son and I used to watch cooking shows together and he is now a great cook- so there will be benefits! PS I like the new look of TWT. What is the template called?
I need to find something else with kids in it since Isabelle doesn’t seem to like the adult competition shows.
BTW: The template is Carmack.
So so cozy… sometimes it is really hard to leave a good place, even if a better one awaits. (Though I suspect that she might disagree that her own bed is a better place than yours.) Time to watch something you both enjoy!
I think I have a cozier comforter… and she knows it!
My kids have 100% reverted to co-sleeping since we’ve been home. They’re getting to big for me to carry yo their beds so I have to snuggle with one or the other until they fall asleep. It is cozy! And comforting. And not that great for my back.
Oh goodness! I can sleep with my kids for a night or two, but they’re so big and squirmy that I couldn’t handle it on a nightly basis. Kudos to you.
Love the It is cozy line! So hard to move them once they slip into this half sleep. I love watching kids at this time but I also know I can’t pick them up and move them. Enjoy these moments!
And that’s why I have to be more attentive at night (and find a better show). I typically catch her as she’s dozing, but this was close to being total dreamland.
So funny! Isabelle was super cozy. I know the feeling. I love that she enjoys the baking shows! Does she like to bake with you?
Not. At. All.
Ari is my co-baker.
I hate falling asleep anywhere other than bed- you were smart to try to get her to bed before you lost her. Wren, my oldest, has been into cooking shows recently too. She watches Nailed It on Netflix. I don’t think you have to have baking talents to be on that show…
