Funny Boy

I went into Gracie’s room the other morning because I heard her waking up.


Normally, she fake cries when she wakes up until I come to get her. But on this particular morning, she wasn’t crying. She was laughing.


So, I go in there to get her. It’s pitch black because it’s, like, 5:00am. I walked into the room, and before I could get my bearings, I realized there was someone sitting in Gracie’s tiny rocking chair.

It was Bean. And he was wearing only his underwear.

“Hi, Mom,” he said, rocking away.


“Hey, Buddy,” I said, confused. “Um… what are you doing in here?”

“I’m just singing,” he replied happily.

Uh huh… Uh huh… Totally normal.

“Okay, well, where are your pajamas?”

“Oh, they were too heavy, so I took them off.”


Oh. Sure. Okay. Makes total sense to me.

  1. What’s the big deal, mom? You didn’t get the 5 am party invite? I bet they entertain each other quite a bit. Maybe they were Santa snooping.

  2. you know… pajamas totally cramp a boys style! 😉

    I enjoyed this! My little boy is 2 1/2 and actually pretty strong, but he is now going through a phase where everything is too “feavy” (heavy). The other day he lifted up a tortilla chip and said “Oh, it’s too feavy!” in a little whiny voice. Kids are so bizarre sometimes.
