Me: Curling up in the recliner with my blanket

Bear: Blanket! (Runs over to grab the blanket to pull it off the chair)

Me: Bear, you are going to have a very grumpy Mom instead of a mostly grumpy Mom if you don’t leave my blanket alone (pulls the corner out of Bear’s mouth)

Bear: Blanket!!! (Grabs another section of blanket and starts pulling)

At this point the TV remote slides off my lap and onto the floor

Bear: Toy!!! (Drops the blanket, grabs the remote and runs at top speed to the back door)

Bear: I need out Mom, NOW!

Me: Give me the remote and you can go out

Bear: No! I need a toy to carry out

Me: Fine, but you aren’t taking the remote (has to catch Bear around his ribs and hold him to get the remote out of his mouth)

Bear: I don’t want to go out now!

Me: Of course not…
