Eavesdropping Spud

Category: Critter Stories

I love teasing Spud. Sometimes she comes up with the most hilarious thing you would never think of. A recent bedtime night chat went like this:

 Me: Can I sleep in your bed with you tonight?

 Spud: No mama, you have your own bed

 Me: (pretending to pout) But, but, I don’t want to sleep in my own bed.

 Spud: Why Mama, you don’t like papa?

 Me: I didn’t say that!

Spud: Is it because he is smelly? I know he can be smelly sometimes (she said it with so much empathy!). But it’s because he just hasn’t shower (and she said this with a shrug, with both her hands in the air)

At this point, I burst out laughing. My ears couldn’t believe what I have heard, and I am completely amused by her tone of voice as well as the facial expressions she portrayed when she said the words simultaneously.

Spud: I’m so sorry Mama. You have to sleep in your own bed first. Maybe after you do that, you can come stay with me for a while

Me: Hmmm…but I’m tired. I want to sleep here now.

Spud: No mama. It’s my bed.

Me: Sigh! Ok. I understand. I think I’ll sleep with Squirt then.

Spud: Oh. Ok. I think that’s ok. You can do that.

Says she with a smile.

End. Of.conversation.

Oh. What a cheeky little monkey. The mind of a 4 year old can be so amazing.
