Well just got the youngest to bed. I kept saying bed? and he would say bed and move closer to the stairs. Once I said OK, bed. Well, that was not good enough. . . he wanted a ride to bed so he climbed up on the couch and gets on my back with his arms around my neck. He then proudly announces "backpack on" and sits there waiting for me to move.
And yes, he got his ride up to bed. . . .
What can I say, he is 3 and knows what he wants. . . .
