...Sometimes You Don't

| 0 Comments | 0 TrackBacks

My sister's best friend in high school used to have a name for that burst of silly energy you have right before falling asleep: yinky.  We use this term to describe the Joodlebug (a.k.a. Jude) right before bed.

Take tonight after a bedtime story, turning of the lights and settling into his pillow, Jude shot upright and played with his nose.

"What's wrong?" I asked.

"Boogies," he explained.

"I'll get a tissue," I said.  Not wanting to disrupt the bedtime routine, I added, "You stay here!"

After I got back, he did some crazy nose blowing action, jumped all over his bed and flung the tissue across the room.  Then he flopped on the bed.

"I'm a nut," he said flatly.
