Just Heard Thursday
This will be brief this week, sick kids and a tired mama are what we’ve got around here!
Kyler: “Can I sleep with you mama?”
Mama: “No, you may sleep in your own bed. Rylee only sleeps in there on the floor because she is sick.”
(5 minutes go by)
Daddy: “Don’t stick your finger in Rylee’s mouth Kyler, that’s gross.”
Rylee: “I have germs Kyler, you don’t want to get sick.”
Kyler (exhuberant): “I stick my finger in Rylee’s mouth, I get sick. I get sick then I sleep in Mommy’s bed!”
(He then happily sticks his fingers at Rylee again, she’s quicker this time and he misses out – but seriously, that’s some logical thinking for a 3 year old!)
Rylee (in bed talking with Mama about death and other very deep things): “When I’m in bed at night, I always look out my window to make sure no one’s there.”
Mama (concerned, trying to ease her fears): “Have you ever seen anyone there? Why are you worried?”
Rylee: “No I haven’t but I’m worried someone might come and break the window and steal Basil (our cat) out of my bed. I try real hard to keep her head covered with my blankets so no one can see her. She’s such a sweet kitty.”
That is so the phase she’s in right now-more worried about animals and someone taking her kitty than anything else! As I write this, Basil is dressed in a pink tutu and a pink baby tank top and she is swaddled in a pink blanket.
