Our Creative Eric

I know that posting this soon after our last post is very out-of-character for us, but this was too funny NOT to tell.

Last night, after putting the kids to bed, Ryan and I watched a little TV while waiting for them to fall asleep. We heard a little knock on the door. Eric poked his head in and asked if he could talk to us.

We muted the TV and he climbed up between us on the bed. He started: “You see… I just… well, why don’t I stay here and guard the TV while you guys go look for my blanket? It has to be around the house somewhere, maybe in the basement. You just keep looking.”

Ryan and I just laughed. While I snuggled Eric, Ryan checked Eric’s bedroom and found the blanket tucked securely deep down in the bed.

Nice try, Eric. You get an 'A' for effort.

What a cute story! I love how the mind of five-year-olds work sometimes! They really can be brilliant, can't they?

We both laughed and laughed with this one. If only we had TV, then I could use this on Sam! As it is, we'll just have to add it to the list of one-liners we've stolen from your kids. This did inspire us to go back and find our favorite movie of Eric putting his pants on by himself. :D

I think that Eric has inherited his Dad's "creative" mind and thought of a plan of how to spend more time with Mom and Dad :) What a cute story! Thanks for sharing it with us! We love you guys!
