I did end up putting the Valerian (which smells awful, by the way) in Coralie's after dinner chocolate milk... She was much more pleasant at bedtime, and we made some progress on 'James and the Giant Peach'. She was awake looking at a book in bed for awhile, but was sound asleep by 9:30, which was much more acceptable than some of the nights she's had this week.
Keelan is in the midst of one of those 'what if....?' phases, and most of the time they are unanswerable and hilarious, so I've been making a list:
What if the whole world was a sidewalk?
What if a dinosaur ate our house and we were in it?
What if the sun was swinging and our house was swinging?
What if our house sat on a swing?
And my favorite:
What if you were an idiot?
