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.
