Not a creature was stirring…
Well, no one was supposed to be stirring last night, but that didn’t stop them. The boys were in their bedroom, but they certainly were not asleep. As I sat in the living room, I could hear them moving about in their room. In addition, there was the occasional whisper.
After a few minutes, however, the noise lessened and then eventually it stopped all together. At that point, it seemed an investigation was no longer warranted.
Although, when I went to bed, I looked in on all the kids. That is when I discovered what the boys had been up to.
The container that is supposed to house their stuffed animals was nearly empty…their headboards, however, was a different story.
This was Griffin’s newly decorated headboard.
I mean, who wouldn’t want to sleep with two snakes, an alligator, a cheetah, an elephant, a monster…looking down on you?
Not to be out done, this was Owen’s version.
Now I could handle Pooh Bear, the bunny, the cute puppy and bear, but the snake? He’d have to relocate for me to take up residence anywhere near there!
With their masterpieces complete, they were sound asleep. I left their creative displays in place, and headed off to my own bed.
Like always, morning came all to fast. It was time to rise and shine…or at least fake it.
“Owen. You have to wake up. It is time to take the kids to school.”
With his eyes still closed, he rolled towards me. “You like mine the best, right Mom?”.
“Like what the best?”
“My decorations. I did the best job. Didn’t I?”
“You did a great job.”
“Yes! I knew it! I knew mine was better than Griffin’s.”
Obviously, beauty is in the eye of the beholder…and there is no lack of self esteem here.
