Another guy working his butt off for not enough pay, but still loves to spoil his wife whenever he can, and spending time with his little girl.


A certain baby princess doesn't want to go to bed, even though it's past her bedtime and she's super sleepy. With Cadance already ready to just hit the sack, it's Shining Armour's turn to put Flurry Heart to bed. He should have picked a bedtime story first....

A quick and cute one-shot, coming from a dad who learned this one the hard way.

Awe, that was so cute :yay:

Indeed, this was adorable. :P

Pretty good read. A simple one in itself, but was a pretty good read.

The cuteness... can't take it.

Stories based on experience are always interesting; this one has the added bonus of being adorable.

Once upon a time on a beautiful Tuesday morning, it was September, was a big city waking from it's slumber....

This was a sweet little story :twilightsmile:

That was just so utterly adorable. :rainbowkiss: I loved every bit of it. It's really great that people are developing this bit of Shining's relationship with his newborn daughter. This was also really heartwarming to hear it's based on your own experiences and I wish you {and Shining} best of luck with your kids. :twilightsmile:

This was absolutely adorable ^_^ I was having a bit of a rough day, but this really brought a smile to my face. Thank you so so so much :heart:


Glad I could help. :twilightsmile: Let me know if you need an open ear sometime; I'm willing to listen.

Im very proud of you my writer friend! Congratulations! Almost 50 upvotes and no downvotes! :pinkiesmile:

Also, extremely cute story, you are very talented.


Thank you for your kind words. It means a bunch. :pinkiehappy:

So that's why they're called earth ponies! It makes much more sense now.

Cute and simple. Putting a filly to bed. A coherent storyline from start to end.

I like the make up story Shining it may sound cheesey to readers but it's supposed to be as it's a kids bedtime story.

Though I wonder. Where is Sunburst?

well now, wasn't that just sweet :yay:
