Last weekend a family friend got married. Not long after we got there, Claire started signing eat. Our table hadn't been called yet, so we distracted her by walking around the block and visiting the park across the road.
Over an hour later our table was finally called to the buffet. In true toddler fashion, Claire refused to eat anything. We hung out at the table through the toast and cake cutting hoping Claire would decide she was hungry again.
Then the music came on. Bribing doesn't usually work with Claire, but that night it did. With a little chicken to fortify her she was ready to dance.
Two and half hours past her bedtime and she was still going strong.
Three hours late to bed, but still up at her usual time in the morning....
