Two is okay but three is a crowd?
A bedtime conversation:
Little One: Daddy were you happy with mommy that she had another dolly?
Me : Yes. Very happy! (she is the "another dolly".. the first dolly in question being Jr.)
Jr. : What would have happened if you had one more dolly?
Me : Let's not talk about that okay. We are happy that we have two dollies and you are both good girls. We don't need any more dollies.
LO : You are right. How could we have three kids. You have only two hands.
Me : ??????? What has my hands have to do with how many kids we have in the house?
Jr. : Right now we have two kids sleeping on either side of you on your two hands. How will the third kid go to sleep? Where will it put its head? On your neck or something?
LO : Maybe the third kid will have to lie down on top of you!
Me : You know there are more things to worry about when we have three kids than bedtime?
Jr. : Yeah. We won't be able to warm you when you say "I am cold.. come and lie down on me and warm me".
LO : Yeah. That kid will be too small and when we jump on you to warm you and will get squished between me and akka. What will happen then?
Me : I give up! Please just go to sleep now.
Real estate at bed time on daddy's hand seems to be the key criteria for number of kids in the house.. who knew?!
