Hallie burst into the kitchen with a huge smile on her face. "Tuxie Wuxie decided to sleep on my bed this afternoon! Tuxie Wuxie is sleeping on my bed for the first time EVER!" She could barely contain her excitement as she considered the possibility that Tux might actually want to spend his afternoon in her space, rather than in Will's.
"Come see, Mama," she begged.
At that moment I happened to be elbow deep in a sink full of hot, soapy water and dirty dishes, so I suggested Hallie take a picture of Tux with my phone and then bring the phone back to me so I could see the scene. This is the picture she took:
I laughed out loud when I saw the photo. OF COURSE Tux was sleeping on Hallie's bed…Will was on Hallie's bed.
I couldn't burst Hallie's bubble, so I just smiled and commented on how comfortable Tux looked. Which he did, on that day in that moment. He hasn't been back since.
