Oh the things a boy can do when it’s time to go to bed.
A drink he needs to quench his thirst.
On the way to get a drink he finds a toy airplane.
A fly by is needed.
Bored with that, he sits on the floor and picks at his toes.
Once cleaned, he ambles around and finds a book.
Lie on the floor and read awhile.
He hears Mom in the kitchen.
Oh yes, he’s hungry.
Is there a snack?
Now, time for bed again.
Oh, he forgot about those teeth he was to brush.
Why walk to the bathroom?
Why not roll tonight?
And on the way to brush, tease a sister or 2.
Toothpaste, oh the joys of something so blue.
Check out the pictures on the tube.
Squeeze, squeeze, squeeze.
Oops, got some on the counter.
That’s ok, I’ll just play with it.
Oh no, the tooth paste slipped off the side of the brush.
Cry because it’s not on straight.
Straightness is a must.
Mom fixes it.
Finally brush, brush, brush.
Make some faces in the mirror.
Brush some more.
Spit some bubbles.
Left handed boys have a hard time getting all the corners.
Blow some bubbles.
Stick out your tongue.
Oops, dripped some.
Rinse, swish, spit, spit, spit.
Drink some more so we can spit some more.
Done with that.
Have a chit chat with yourself.
Throw pillows at girls.
Ask a bunch of questions.
“But what are we doing tomorrow?”
“Can we go swimming?”
“Why do cats need food?”
“Can I drive a jeep when I’m big?”
“I like when Kennedy squeals!”
Get a bedtime reminder.
Chats with Dad.
“Is it to late for a Bible story?”
Read, wiggle and pray.
Time for bed.
Flip flop across the floor.
Arrange the pillow.
Straighten the blanket.
Oops, flip the blanket over.
The right side is a must.
Fix the blanket.
Hugs and kisses goodnight.
Tuck Little Boy Blue in.
Sigh with relief.
He’s fixing the nightlight.
Back in bed.
2 minutes later.
A drink is needed to quench his thirst.
