Grandpop has never seen Billy bedtime ritual (du jour), so I let him follow Billy around the house for the "goodnights".
"Goodnight ship!" "Goodnight girl!" "Goodnight ship!" (a different ship). Goodnight girl! (a different girl). "Goodnight clock!" "Goodnight boat!"
He walks around to every painting and wall hanging, like the wall clock, and says goodnight to each one before bed. He made up this routine and he likes it. This all comes out of his boat obsession. He feels the need to personally say goodnight to every ship/boat painting in the house. There are 5- six if you count a picture with a small boat in the back, and seven if you count the ship model in the living room that he wishes goodnight as well.
I always thought Goodnight Moon was silly. But the book has it right as far as a toddler is concerned.
"Goodnight stars. Goodnight air. Goodnight noises everywhere."
