A few nights ago, I let Caleb and Chloe go to bed together. When Brett works nights and I am really tired, the bedtime routine is much quicker if they go to bed together. All they do it play, but then when I eventually separate them, they go to bed quickly!
Anyway, on this night, I heard, "Mommy, Swiper is under my bed."
It was time for them to separate, so I went upstairs. When Caleb went to his room, Chloe screamed, "I'm so scared of Swiper. I'm too scared to sleep in my room or your room*. I need to sleep with Caleb."
Because sometimes it is just fun to be indulgent, I let them sleep together in Caleb's room. They didn't wake up Luke, so I am guessing they went to sleep fast. In the morning, they told me they talked and laughed all night....but I didn't hear them, so I am not sure!
Since then, every couple of hours throughout the day, Chloe will say, "I'm scared of monsters."
Today, in the car, Caleb replied to her, "I'm not afraid of monsters. I could beat up the monsters. Even monsters with eight knives." (Boys are so graphic, aren't they? I swore my son would never talk like that....umm....I have eaten my words!)
Chloe said back, "I can't beat up monsters, even monsters with one knife. But I can beat up lions."
Never a dull moment....
*That reasoning makes me think I'm being fooled
