11:54 am: Wake up. Shower?...No!

We're having work done in our house, so the place looks like a war zone. Half the stuff is packed up, and the stuff that is not packed needs packing. Part of the work required that we dismantle our waterbed on Saturday. Then, last night, we filled it again to sleep on for the two weeks, even though we will have to dismantle it once or twice more yet. The boys frame has been taken apart and their mattress is currently on the floor.

I got up early to run some errands this morning, but then went to take a nap. The Cherubim woke me up a few hours later with his gentle, polite, "Wake up." When I got up and asked him what he wanted, he said "Shower?" Puzzled, I followed him to the bathroom.

He had taken the hose, which was still duct taped to the showerhead nozzle, and run it down the hall and through his room to stick the end in between his matress and box springs. He wanted me to turn on hose so he could fill his mattress...possibly to make it come up to it's normal height...I don' t know.

When he heard me telling his uncle how clever he was, he gave me a big smile.

I never know if I should correct people's spelling/grammar or not. Some people mind, some people don't. I hope you are one of those who don't, because seeing "threw his room" ("through his room") is nagging my inner censor. :)

But that's very cute that he wanted a water bed. And he went to all the work of figuring out how to get one; all he wanted from you was to turn a handle. So considerate. :)

Yeah...I kept imagining the water horror that would have come otherwise.
