Me: Okay self, we have lots to do tonight. Laundry to wash, sort, and put away. Gifts to wrap. Kids to keep on task.
Myself: But I don’t want to do those things. I want to go to bed.
Bed: Yes, come to me. I am warm and cozy.
Selby: I will keep your feet warm!
Emerson: I will keep your lap warm!
Lord Dormir: I will keep your face warm!
Laundry: Hey, we’re not going to wash ourselves over here!
Gifts: Yeah, and we’re tired of hiding in cupboards and boxes and drawers. We want to be wrapped.
Me: I’m afraid we might be outnumbered, guys.
