Note to Self: Do Not Bless Sully

"Okay, Sully, it's time to go to sleep."

"Okay but I need water."

"You have water."

(Looks at me doubtfully)

"Yeah but it's not cold."

"Okay. Here's some cold water. Goodnight. Bless you." I don't know why I said that. I meant to say love you.

"Bless me? Bless me, mommy?" (starts to get worked up, makes worried face) "Bless me??? MOM! Bless me TO WHAT? TOOOO WHAAAAAT MAAAAAM???"

"Bud, calm down. I meant to say love you."


"Sully. I love you. That's what I meant."

"Okay." (looks relieved) "You should go put on your fancy purple dress."

"I...don't have a fancy purple dress."

"You do. I coloured it for you with a marker." (gesturing wildly in the air) "It has a purple flower and--" (pinches fingers together and squints his eyes) "--a tiiiiiiiiny little square!"

"Ah. Great."

I haven't gone to my closet to fact check but it's the thought that counts, anyway.

Bless his heart. But don't tell him I said that.
