We have just finished our lunch and like every other day, nap follows. All of the kids are on their cots with their respective blankies, butchies and loveys.
As a newbie blogger I have found that I am looking at conversations between the kids and I, with a different perspective. If one of the kids says something particularly funny or offbeat, I try to remember it so share with everyone when I have a chance to post.
This conversation took place mere moments ago...
The Dude (after getting up off his cot and coming over to me)- "Mama, I have a big problem".
Me- "What's going on Dude?"
The Dude- "Its my eyes. They hurt...so I can't go to sleep".
Me- "Maybe your eyes hurt because you are tired. I bet if you got on your cot and closed your eyes they would start to feel better".
The Dude- "No. I already tried that. When I close my eyes they press out (he pushes on his eyelids for dramatic effect) and I am scared if I push them too hard, they will come out the other side".
The Dude- (getting irritated at my apparent eyeball ignorance) "You know! If your eyes push out they could come out the other side!".
Me- "Get back on your cot little man".
