Crossing every "t"

We broke the exciting news to the boys during dinner tonight that our whole Henderson family will be visiting later this summer. Always about the logistics, Andrew immediately wanted to know where everyone would sleep.

Seemingly from nowhere, Thomas launched into a descriptive narration of how it would all go down.

He decided immediately that Claire will sleep with him in his room. He says that Claire will sleep in the big bed in his room and he will sleep in his small bed but clarified several times that she would indeed sleep with him, in his room.

Next he declared that Zac would like to sleep in Andrew's room and that since Andrew has a big bed, they'll share.

Almost as quickly he decided that RoRo and Aunt Maria will sleep in mommy and daddy's bed and after a little thought, said that mommy will sleep with them. He says our bed is big enough for "fhree."

Then he slowed down a little before deciding about Butch. Turns out, Butch will be sleeping on a couch. "Maybe the living room, maybe the basement."

Then we had to start prompting him. What about baby Luke? He thinks that baby Luke should sleep in a crib. In the basement. With Butch. And, that we should put some blankets in there since it doesn't have a mattress.

What about Uncle Eric, we said? Eric, it seems, will be sleeping outside on the trampoline. With daddy.

The best part? "Every morning all the kids will go run outside and jump on their heads."

So, that's something to which all of us should be looking forward.

I would love to be a fly on the wall to hear the "who will sleep where" conversations among Andrew, Thomas, and the two of you. We'll be fascinated to see what our "assignments" are when we arrive.

I am crying I'm laughing so hard at my image of, first, dad taking care of Luke, then the one of Eric and Mark on the trampoline. Not a bad idea really! Thanks Thomas! :)
We are sooooooooooooooooo excited!
