So my precious little angel has been having trouble sleeping lately, and once again came into snuggle with me and we chatted for a bit before she went off to sleep.
Ladybug: I want a play room to put all my toys in.
Mom: Why? So, you aren’t tempted to play with them when you’re trying to go sleep?
Mom: I want a big family room so we can all hang out together in there instead of the living room. We’ll move the TV in there and then the living room …
Ladybug: What? Move the TV … no way! I want the TV in the living room so I can play with my toys in the living room while I watch TV
Mom: No, TV’s aren’t supposed to be in living rooms. Living rooms are suppose to be the clean formal room for your guests when they come to visit and the family room is for the family. Therefore, the TV goes in the family room.
Ladybug: I never heard of a TV not in a living room.
Mom: When I was growing up there was never a TV in the living room and there was only one TV in the whole house and one telephone.
Ladybug: What?!? Only one TV in the whole house?
Mom: Yes, and only one telephone. The TV was in the family room and telephone was in the kitchen.
Ladybug: So you had to like get up every time the phone rang to answer it.
Mom: Yes, and you’re Uncle Bobby and I were the remote control and sometimes the antenna to.
Ladybug: How boring!
Mom: That’s just the way it was. You’re pappy would say, “Sis, get up and turn that to channel 12.” or “Son, go fix that antenna. Now, don’t move or it will mess up.”
Ladybug: How boring! (again)
She is now snoring away and sleeping peacefully. Ever want a good way to put your kids to sleep just tell them a boring story about your childhood.
Anyway, just wanted to share a little lighthearted humor. This is pillow talk in my house!
