Reasons my toddler didn't go to bed until 11 last night

And now I am exhausted, since she totally didn't sleep in and I couldn't go to sleep until she did.
  1. I had a meeting until 8 and my husband was out of town so I had to take her little interrupty self
  2. She wanted to play with the kittens
  3. Her: "I need a little love, mom."
    Emotional blackmail.
  4. She needed a drink.
  5. Frank (kitten) was in her bed, purring up a storm
  6. Lola (other kitten) was trying to eat the books she'd snuck into her bed
  7. And she might've been distracted by me blasting Hamilton.
