Stuck Under the Bed

Last night, after I tucked my son into bed, he requested a glass of water.  I went downstairs to get it, but when I came back upstairs, he wasn't in his bed.

Hmmm I thought. Where could he be?

I went around to the other side of the bed, and noticed a hand sticking out. "I wonder who that hand could belong to," I said.

Bubba giggled. He poked his face out and gave me a big grin.  "Would you have known I was here if you hadn't seen my hand?"

"Probably not," I said.  "I would've thought you took off to Timbuktu. Now get yourself out of there and get back into bed, please."

He tried.  But guess what? He was stuck!

"Are you getting a little big for fitting under the bed, Bubba?"

"No, Mama.  I just like it here.  I think I'll hang out like this a while."

"Are you sure you don't need help?"

He shook his head.

"Okay.  Goodnight."  I walked out of the room.

(I stood outside the door to make sure he could get out.  It took a few minutes, but he did.  I guess no more hiding under the bed for Bubba!)

  3. I worry about the same thing when I'm changing the oil on my car, especially since I have my pride.

    "Are you stuck under there?"
    "Nope, I'm just great. I've got this. Just gonna hang out here a while. (Please don't leave)"

  4. They sure do grow up fast, don't they? It's cute that he didn't want to admit to being stuck and it's sweet how you let him figure his own way out while making sure you were right there for him all along.

    1. I figured if he got under there, he'd be able to get himself out. But I couldn't just leave him in case he couldn't!

    1. Haha! On occasion, I do. So hopefully there weren't too many dust bunnies under there.

    1. But he's afraid of the monsters in his closet. (Beats me why he didn't think there were any under his bed!)

  8. My bed is flat on the ground. No hiding for me!

    1. I'm glad he got unstuck, too. I really didn't want to have to lift up his bed!

  10. I think I'll give under-the-bed a try. I'm curious. If I never blog again, you'll know I'm stuck.

    Love,

  11. It's cool how it handled it without getting upset. He's one level-headed young man.

    1. I think it was just his pride. There was no way he was going to let Mama know he was stuck!
