A little girl gets a proposal from her mother about a sibling and she sweetly goes back on it, leaving everyone in splits.
Children are truly the best of both worlds. They can make you feel at the top of the world and in a matter of seconds, they can make you come dashing down. Lanie Churco (@laniechurco) shares the joys and sorrows of parenting on social media. Her daughter Blakeley pulls the most hilarious tricks and antics on her all the time. This time, the mother decided to pull one over her instead. Recently, they welcomed another baby girl into the family, but before her arrival, Blakeley desperately wanted a sibling. She made her desire pretty vocal to her mother. In this video, Lanie gives Blakeley an 'impossible' choice and her reaction is too cute to miss.
The mother begins the video with a simple question: "Do you want another brother or sister?" The girl immediately gets elated and says, "Yes." She is seen jumping up and down in joy, hearing the possibility. Lanie then suddenly puts forward the condition, "Okay, then go to sleep." It is a toddler's birthright to bother parents when they are about to doze off. Blakeley is no different. But in the pursuit of a sibling, she is willing to give away this birthright. The girl takes no time and makes the floor her temporary bed.
The whole situation brought out loud chuckles from parents. The girl, on her part, sweetly uttered, "I am going sleepy, night night." To show how serious she is about her part of the bargain, Blakeley immediately closes her eyes when her mother says, "Goodnight." But it wasn't going to be this easy after all. After some time, she wakes up and asks her 'Momma' to go to sleep. If she had to travel to dreamland, then so had her mother. Her mother was not going to go down easy and came prepared with an answer.

Lanie told her point blank, "The thing is, I can't go to sleep." This did not deter Blakeley at all as she continued to ask her mother to go to sleep. She keeps pulling her on the floor with her and 'sleep.' The mother again explains to her, "If you want another baby brother or sister, Mommy can't go to sleep." She gives Blakeley further instructions that she needs to follow to get the sibling. The mother adds, "You have to go to sleep in your bed." Like mother, like daughter, Blakeley flat-out refuses. She begins throwing a fit when the mother emphasizes, "You have to." Knowing that it is impossible for her to get a sibling if she does not go to her own bed and sleep, she retorted to her best weapon. The daughter became her cutest self and asked for the baby. This trick definitely did wonders for Mommy, as seen by the arrival of her younger sister.
The comments section was in splits seeing the innocence of the baby. The whole incident will definitely be a source of laughter in their lives for years to come. @kateeeeelynn was surprised there weren't more questions and wrote, "I’m so surprised she didn’t say why?!" @nilsaprowant presented the daughter's side of the story and commented, "She’s like I'm not ruining my chances; everyone’s going to sleep."
