We were driving home on afternoon and MD asked, “If I were a bridge, with my hands and feet on the ground, would little cars drive over my back?”
CDF just replied, “Yes.”
“Would the water go under my tummy?”
All I could do was smile. As CDF said later, sometimes it’s just better to go with the flow and say “yes,” than try to understand what the question is about.
For a number of weeks MD has been sleeping without the guard rail attached to the bed (the kind that slips between the mattress and box spring). She has done really well and has not rolled off, at least until last night. Ironically she was just talking about falling off her bed a night or two ago. So sometime in the middle of the night I heard a thump and when I walked into her room she was standing up beside her bed, wondering what had happened. She doesn’t remember much of it this morning — probably a good thing.
