Last night Evan went to bed with his newly made spider keeping watch along with his gargoyle on top of his bookcase next to his bed. My husband decided he would lie next to Evan until Evan fell asleep.
So after I turned off the lights and took Sean to bed, my husband and Evan began a long discussion of whether there were spiders or not. My husband turned the conversation to the spider Evan made and how it kept all other spiders away. So Evan climber out of bed, petted the spider, and laid it down to go to sleep. Then Evan climbed back into bed and asked his father to sing him the Tiki Room song, which my husband didn’t know. After contemplating this new development, Evan asked for a song about a Tiki, a pineapple, a princess, and a unicorn. (I plan to write down the song my husband came up with.) Then Evan pointed to one of his red Chinese paper lanterns and said that it was Mars. The conversation went on.
After an hour, Evan was finally asleep, and my husband was free from his obligation. He decided to go to bed too. Now I wonder what kind of consequence this solution has. . . .
