How does that saying go? “A Madeline never forgets?”

Seriously, though. As my husband says, “Sleep is just a pause button for her.” Don’t think that telling her “we’ll find your gloves at the masquerade ball tomorrow” will get you off the hook. She’ll wake up, bright eyed and bushy tailed, and her first words to you will be “Can we go to the masquerade ball now?!! I need to find my gloves!! Can we, can we, CAN WE??!?!?!?” with much jumping and excited clapping of hands.

And no, I don’t have any idea why she’s so worked up about her gloves (she’s never had any) being left behind at a masquerade ball (she’s never been to one). Just accept that it happened and move on. You’re not going to win this one.
