Setting: 7:17 am.  I am laying in the bed pretending to sleep so that I can have a few more minutes of quiet, listening to the steady rain.  I hear the boys playing happily and attempting to be quiet; the best Jack can do right now is attempt. 🙂  Jack enters the room.

J:  Mommy, Daniel and I wanted puddles to jump in.  We looked outside and said, “Awwwww!  No puddles!”  Wasn’t that funny?

M: Baby, you know that you’re not supposed to wake Mommy unless there’s an emergency.

J: Mommy, pretend there’s a fire.

I managed not to laugh out loud, but I was glad to hide my face in my pillow.
