I put Ellison to bed just before I had to run up and grab the laundry. When I came back down, he was leaping back into bed (as usual).
“You need to stay in bed,” I said.
“But moooom, I need to -” I put a fresh-from the dryer blanket over him. “-ohhhh. It’s so warm!”
He snuggled right up and went to sleep.
Ellison: I walked on the tightrope and I didn’t even fall off!
Me: Wow! Are you going to join the circus?
Ellison: No. Silly mama. I’m not going to join the circus until I’m 16.
Me: I’ll teach you how to make websites when you’re bigger.
Ellison: I think I already know how to make a website.
Me: Oh? How do you do it?
Ellison: I can’t tell you. It’s a surprise.
