Bedtime beckoning

Every night at bedtime once teeth are brushed, stories are read, and songs are sung, Finn deploys one last stall-tactic request. He asks for me to send Mommy up.

These days Laura is typically busy holding a witching-hour Nash.

Aware of the fact that she isn’t always prompt in her goodnight follow through, Finn has taken to an amended request.

Finn: Daddy, will you send Mommy up?

Me: Sure buddy. She’ll be up as soon as she can.

Finn: Daaaaddy, send her up now. No excuses and no argument.
