James had me stop cleaning the floor this morning by making a bed on the couch loaded with pillows, blankets, and stuffed puppies. He loves dogs.
“Here, Mommy. I made a bed for you. You need to lie down.”
“Oh, that’s so sweet, James, thank you.”
“Lie down now. Lie down right here,’ he said, patting the pillow end of the couch, ‘Put the blanket on you.”
“Ok. Like this?” I pulled the blanket up over my shoulders and rested my head on the pillow.
“Now hold this,’ he handed me one stuffed puppy. “And this,’ another stuffed puppy.
He turned around and said, “And have this one,’ another stuffed puppy was put on my face.
“Now, close your eyes. Close your eyes, Mommy!”
“OK, ok, sorry. My eyes are closed.” I shut them tight.
“You have to sleep now.”
“Ok, this is a nice game.”
“Eyes closed? Now snore.”
