One night when Oliver was sick and sleeping on the couch, I snuck in to check on Simon. He was sleeping in his brother’s bed.
“How cute!” I thought as I grabbed my camera to snap a picture. “He certainly misses that brother of his.”*
But then I remembered how he’s often saying that Oliver’s mattress is so much softer and nicer than his, and wondering if maybe they should switch beds. I was glad he got to test it out for just one night, since I know he’s asked Oliver to let him sleep in his bed and has been flatly refused.
*This may have been true. It certainly did take a lot longer for him to fall asleep than normal without someone to talk to and play with first. And he tried to con his way out a couple of times by suggesting that maybe his tummy didn’t feel so great either.
