Chilly Willy

Awww...look at that. See the nice boy all snuggled in bed with his covers up to his neck? Looks cozy, doesn't he? I just put him to bed, and our house is ridiculously cold, so it would make perfect sense for him to stay in exactly that position, close his eyes, and go to sleep that way.

But that is not what's going to happen. Nope. In ninety seconds he will have those covers off and will be curled up on top of them. I will go in before bed tonight and pull his blankets back up to chest level, but when I come in the next morning I can predict with a fair degree of certainty that they will be off again. Tricky little boy. I'm scared he's gonna get sick if he keeps it up, but haven't figured out how to keep him sealed inside, and so far I've obviously done a poor job of explaining the upside of trying to stay warm.

Let me know if you have any tips! Right now I'm leaning toward duct taping him in there... :o)


  1. Ali -
    Don't yu remmeber wearing your RED zip up sleeper during those cold winters in CT?
    If you can find a FUN one, Zeke might go for it (with lightweight jammies underneath). Of course, the heat goes out from the head first. I don;t suppose you could get him to wear his "jester" hat, too!

    Good luck with that.
    Love, Mom

  2. I do remember the footy-jams, and I was trying to get away from those (because then he'll never ever learn to stay under his covers), but I may just have to give in and go that route in order to preserve his health this winter. Thanks for the hot tip! Love, ali
