Elmo's a Crook
Noah has been waking up with bad dreams during the night recently. Fortunately, a binky helps him go back to sleep quickly...if he can find it. Last night he woke up again and kept crying, so I went in to help him find the binky. When I got there, he was sitting up in bed holding his new Elmo doll from Nana for Christmas...and shaking it. Then I realized he did find a binky--but Elmo wouldn't give it up. As I searched through blankets for the real binky, I asked him, "Aww, did Elmo steal your binky?" He nodded sadly and cried. At which point I found the binky, and he laid back down, pacified, and went to sleep again.
