I had to wash the beloved blanket. It had to be done! Have you ever been there? Well, nap time came and the blanket was not clean - I thought you would enjoy the conversation that took place before he headed to bed... (His speech at times is broken and hard to understand; but I will interpret for you!)
Zak: I want my blanket for nap.
Mom: It's downstairs in the laundry. You will need to use your other car blanket for nap time.
Zak: I want my other blanket.
Mom: It is not done yet. Tonight for bed time it will be done for you; but for nap time you will need to use your car blanket.
Zak: (Tipping his head to the side and saying rather sweetly) I'll give you a treat if you go down and get my blanket.
Mom :(Trying to suppress a smile) You don't have a treat to give Mom - your blanket's not done yet.
Zak: (A little sweeter - head tipped a little more to one side) I will give you a treat if you go and get my blanket.
Mom: Not today, Zak - you will have your blanket tonight for bed - but just use your car blanket for nap time.
Zak: OK, no treat... (Heads upstairs - as happy as can be)
Go Figure. Where do they get these things? Hmmmm I wonder.
Blessings to you,
