Sleeping child on couch needs to be in bed.


this requires skills.


Scoop up child-
child stirs. I still. Child stills.
walk to stairs.
count stairs.
check hold on blankie.
walk up counted stairs.
did i count correctly?
carpet – I’ve made it!
traverse through room.
avoid all legos, books, dinosaurs.
Ah! nerf bat. my eternal foe. you will not defeat me.
child throws head back!!
down! down, smooth but quick.
head on pillow. Child stirs.
shhh-shhh-shh-shh- shh
child stills.
why does that work?
for the love…child’s bottom is on blankie…
lift and shift.

child now sleeping in bed.


I have joined the ranks. I am a ninja.
