I think my nine-year-old son has an obsession with pillows. He insisted on having a huge pile of them stacked up around him before he started reading his book.
"Bubba," I said. "There's no way you're going to be able to read with all those pillows practically covering up your head!"
"I can read, Mama," he assured me.
I looked at the kid. I could barely see him, and I wasn't convinced that he was actually reading in there. "Bubba, please read out loud so I know you're doing what you're supposed to be doing."
He started reading. It seemed he actually was reading the words on the pages. Fifteen minutes later, he was done. He dug himself out of the pillow pile and plopped the book on the table.
"Was it really necessary to make a pillow fort like that?" I asked.
"Yeah, you never know when one of the monsters might jump out of the book and come looking for you!"
HA! Bubba has it figured out!ReplyDelete
I wonder if he's had problems with monsters in the past? ;0)Delete
haha pillows will keep any monster awayReplyDelete
Leave it to Bubba to find a new use for pillows! Now he's protected while he's reading. Good job, Bubba.ReplyDelete
The kid is a genius!Delete
LOL He always has a great answer!ReplyDelete
Yes, he does!Delete
That is a danger of reading!ReplyDelete
You never know when scary creatures are going to leap off the pages!Delete
Smart kid - can't argue with the monster logic.ReplyDelete
But what if a Boogie Man hides within the pillows?ReplyDelete
I think my boy has the Boogie Man contained in his closet. ;0)Delete
Monsters are scared of pillows? Good to know! XDReplyDelete
Monsters don't like pillow fights. ;0)Delete
Better hope there is no pillow eating monsterReplyDelete
That would be a problem!Delete
Musta been reading "Stephen King For Kidz."ReplyDelete
Now that would be scary!Delete
Lol. What a thought! I can't stop laughing! :)ReplyDelete
That's my boy!Delete
My kids used to play Hug Fun, a game invented by Favorite Young Man. They put piles of pillows on the floor and threw themselves on them together while they hugged. It could get a little wild.ReplyDelete
Sounds like fun, though!Delete
Pillow protection. I like that!ReplyDelete
Does he read under the covers at night?ReplyDelete
No. At least not that I know of. ;0)Delete
LOL!!! That must be why my youngest creates a blanket fortress when he reads in bed. =)ReplyDelete
