It begins with Bug screaming for Mommy...wait...there's a cry for Daddy, too (yay, I say). Donnie gets out of bed only to be shooed away by Bug in Bug's room. (Night terrors again?) Donnie tries to calm him down but screams of "I want Mommy" are heard and soon Bug and Donnie appear in our room. Bug screams, kicks and cries for several minutes before calming down even a little and finally the tag is made.
I take over. Bug refuses to return to his room so we move to the TV room to snuggle on the couch. He quiets down and things seem good until he spies the icicles hanging from the roof that are visible in the second story window. He's convinced they're awake and wants to say hi through an open window. After much negotiating about the window (it stayed shut), convincing him why the TV needs to be off (all his TV friends really are sleeping at 1am) and maneuvering (it's a small-ish sofa), both of us are cozy on the couch, under a blanket ready for sleep.
In a surprise move Bug changes his mind and
A bit later Bug cries "Mommy, I want to sleep in your bed." It's not a tag this time but a new round. It's a short one...both sides are tired and up for very little struggle. After a few hugs and several kisses, Bug is sound asleep--in his bed.
There's no champion decided and there's already talk of a rematch.
