Escalating Inquiries

Each night when I tuck Finn into bed, his parting request is that I “send Mommy in.” It’s a sweet comment that blends affection with sleep stalling, andeach night Laura goes into wish him good night.

But the other night, she was a little too slow.

A few minutes after I laid down next to Laura, we heard the thump of little feet and saw Finn’s grinning face peek around the corner.

Finn: What are you guys doing awake?

Laura: The better question is what are you doing awake?

Finn: No, no, no, no, no… the better question is why aren’t you laying in bed with me?
