09:40 am: An experiment with a clear result is a good experiment, right?
Even if the result is "BAD IDEA," right?

'Cause we tried going to sleep downstairs on the sleep-sofa with the Olympics on TV last night.

EPIC fail. There was crying and growling and gnashing of teeth... and reading of Harry Potter at 9:45, 'cause that was what was required to get Teh Child to calm down and sleep.

He DID NOT WANT to sleep in his bed EVER AGAIN. He is going to BUILD A HOUSE WITH NO BEDS so we have to SLEEP ON THE SOFA and there will BE NO BEDS. EVER AGAIN.

* * * * *

On the other hand, he spent 4 hours playing happily by himself with a huge box of Legos that a friend sent me.

4 hours. By himself. Didn't want to eat or go potty or watch movies or go outside or anything. Because he had Legos! Legos for building! (He has had Legos for some time, but he didn't have THESE Legos and he didn't have this MANY Legos and that makes All the Difference.)

And he cleaned them all up in 10 minutes so that we could sleep on the sofa-bed.

Now he wants to get back to his Legos and could we please have them with us today (in Hadley) because he will miiiiiss them for hooooours while we're gone.

when i was little it was forts. i only wanted to sleep in a bed if i could make it into a fort. if i couldn't, i would make a fort out of tables, chairs, whatever, and sleep in it with blankets and pillows.

now i kind of want to make a fort.

I loved forts!

I don't remember ever sleeping in them though.

My Dad made me a top bunk (bed frame on bookcases and dressers), so I had a permanent fort for years. So cool.

Remember when we watched the summer Olympics in a motel on a trip down south? Can't believe four hours of Lego, Harry Potter at 9:45, and the Olympics AND the sofa bed. What an enchanted life some little monsters lead!
