For Christmas Carter got, among other things, a Lightening McQueen sheet set. Upon opening it, he asked what it was, and then when told, politely set it aside and moved on to what he hoped were more exciting, less practical presents.
A couple days later it sat, still in its original packaging. Carter picked it up and after a moments examination, excitedly told me that there were two sheet sets in the pack. What a deal that was! The wordage on the packaging stated that it was a Twin Set. And Carter knows that twin means two of something.
Once the business about the Twin Set was cleared up, the sheet set was again quietly set aside. Until last evening. I don’t know why, perhaps the newness of the other Christmas presents had worn off a bit, but whatever the case, he was eager to have is bed made in his new sheets. His excitement was contagious and soon Cody was ooohing and ahhhhing over the sheets. I promised I would wash the sheets and make his bed up in them the next day.
Carter noticed Cody’s interest in the sheets and kindly offered to share his sheet set with him. After much discussion it was decided that Carter would get the pillow case (which when he first took it out of the package caused him distress that the sheets were “too small”. Really?) and the fitted sheet. Cody would get the flat sheet. And so tonight they sleep in beds made up in mismatched sheets.
And I rather love it.
