Mags: "I just have to tuck in two more of my friends and then I'll be done."
Me: "Okay, but then into to bed. Deal?"
Mags: "You got it."
Mags has many friends of the stuffed and plastic kind that she tucks in each night. It's not unheard of for me to have to navigate around the sleeping brood sprawled across the floor. But, the other night, when I went in to give my sleeping beauty one final kiss, one of her favorite companions was NOT sleeping. In fact, he was rather miffed.
So, I had a chat with Hulk. And here were his top five reasons he was having a hard time falling asleep...
1. HULK NO LIKE STINKIN' GIRLY PILLOW!
He was laying on a fluffy, pink, heart-shaped pillow.
2. HULK NO NEED LITTLE BLANKET THAT SMELL LIKE GIRL!
He was covered in Mags' comfort item, 'Silky.'
3. HULK NO LIKE PUNY ROCKET!
Rocket from Little Einsteins was laying on top of him, probably playing him a lullaby.
4. HULK ENERGIZER BUNNY!
Whenever Mags moved it would activate Hulk's talking button.
5. HULK EYES WON'T CLOSE!
Poor plastic Hulk with no eyelids.
I listened to all his woes and told him he needed to try to go to sleep or I was going to have to take out his batteries. He got REALLY angry. And as we all know (or should know)...you wouldn't like him when he's angry.
My daughter would do the same thing with her brother's Hulk.
We do not have a hulk in our house but seriously poor hulk...no eyelids :( Toys and dolls all tucked and put on pillows snug in blankets I ca relate. My girls can make anything into a "crib". Also try finding one of my daughters some nights tucked between their array of stuffed animals and babies. Sometimes I don't know how they sleep.ReplyDelete
My Ryan does a similar thing. After we say prayers I have to tuck all his favorite stuffed dolls into the other side of his bed. I'm always surprised there's room for him.ReplyDelete
do you seriously giggle all day long in your house? because I think you do (and I'm a little jealous of that!)ReplyDelete
we have lots of Build a Bears, a Fix it Felix, and Harry Potter things galore that are tucked in nightly...one normally ends up under my back. LOL
I love when you write these for us, it makes me feel like we're sitting at your kitchen table!
My 7 yo put a headband on her brother's Mindcraft plush creeper toy. He was not happy. Gotta love kids, love the Hulk responses too!ReplyDelete
