Some mornings, I am so tired and I really don't want to get out of bed. The children don't understand this so I have to invent games to play with them that will allow me to continue laying in bed.
The first game we played Sunday morning was hide and go seek. I hid under the cover I was already hiding under. Lame, I know. But not lamer than telling the children, "Leave me alone. I want to lay in bed for 3 more hours."
The next game we played was Cave. In order to lay in bed, I invited the girls under the covers with me. Oooh, this was exciting for them. Perfect. They ran and got their light up dolls. Even more perfect. (They left me alone, in my bed, for 8 seconds while they retrieved their dolls.)
Then we told ghost stories under the covers. This was Tulip's story:
Once upon a time there was a ghost called...............Gobblin' Gobbler. (dramatic pause followed by dramatic voice) He gobbled up.............garbage. There was a princess and she was camping and then Gobblin' Gobbler captured her. He was eating................soda and flaming hot Doritoes! The princess ate veggie chips and then escaped. The end.
