Midnight snacks

I was rocking Sam a few nights ago, trying to get him to go to sleep. He as being very stubborn. He kept looking up at me and asking for a cracker.

"Cracker?" he'd ask.
"No."
"Cracker?"
"No."
"Cracker?"
"No."
He decided on a different approach.
"String cheese?"
"No, Sam. Go. To. Sleep."
"String cheese?"
"NO!"
He was quiet for a few seconds.
"Hangbooger?" he asks.

Sure, kid. It's almost 11:00 pm. You can't have a cracker, but I will run right downstairs and grill you up a hamburger.

I guess it was worth a shot.

How sweet! The way to a boy's heart is through his stomach. I bet if you had grilled him a burger right there on the spot, he would've asked for a cracker instead.

My Sam was just as persistent at that age...actually, he still is! I miss the days of rocking him to sleep - middle school stole right up on us - thanks for refreshing my memory of that time, and many happy days to you and your Sam.

Lately, crackers are the only thing my son will eat! I wish my son still liked to rock to sleep. He is two and too busy to sit still for me. He has never been much of a cuddler. I am hoping my other son will loooooove to cuddle! I need a cuddler!

That's a cute story! Did you end up getting him a snack or did he finally fall asleep?

Flory said...

At that point, I would quickly agree to the cracker - smart kid.
