First, some background.
With it being summer and holidays here, before Christmas Dave bought a little pup tent for Marcus. It's too small for Dave, and almost too small for me, but Marcus loves it. However, we don't really have any flat ground in our backyard (and I'm not having Marcus sleeping in a tent pitched on the fence-less front yard).
So we found a compromise.
Yes, Marcus has a tent (or more accurately, the tent lining) in his bedroom. Not only does he think it is one of the coolest things ever, so does his friend who came over the other day.
Tonight, Marcus came out and asked for a bedtime drink. His instructions were very specific. I was to provide:
- One cup of milk for drinking
- One cup of milk for dunking gingernuts
- An imaginary plate of mice for his stuffed toy snake to eat
Being a good mother, I provided the snack as required and everyone was happy.
All right, so in the end I wasn't happy as one of the glasses of milk got spilt. But he was so delighted I guess it was worth it. Hooray for Friend for Carpets.
