The Flying Bed

This is another episode of previously on Amara and comes from September of 2008. She was almost 4 and ½.

Sleeping Twursula

Grampy and I are always joking about Twursula “holding the bed down” because that cat sleeps more than any other cat and she sleeps very hard. Only 2 thing that can interrupt Twursula’s sleeping, the trash guys and the sound of a lawn mower any where in the neighborhood.

On this particular morning Amara and I were sitting on the bed petting Twursula while she was sleeping. I made a joke about “Twursula doing her job”. Amara wanted to know what Twursula’s job was and I told her — “holding down our bed”.

At first Amara didn’t get it so I explained to her that sometimes the bed tries to get up and take off and it is Twursula’s job to hold it down and not let it fly away. She thought about this for a few minutes and then put her head back and started laughing.

Peanut Butter does that for me sometimes Grandma!”

“He does?”

“Yes, the other day my bed tried to take off and fly out the window and Peanut Butter just jumped on it and held it down!”

She has the greatest imagination! She is really into pretending! And besides, she “gets” Grandma and is almost as silly as I am.

    What a great story! I love Amara’s sense of humor – but of course, she comes by it naturally!!! xoxo

      I’m going to have to check with her Mommy on that one. There was a whole issue with a ghost in the bathroom at the beginning of first grade!!!! I think it was started by some second graders! She gets very clingy if the movie gets to scary.

    Such an imagination! Funny thing: As I read this, I forgot I’d read it before and was thinking, “Oh, I must recommend Bedknobs and Broomsticks.” Then I got to this part and saw I’d already done that (and saw that maybe it wasn’t such a good idea).
    These are the kinds of stories that an older Amara will be so thankful you captured in posts for her. Great love (and giggles) in each and every one.

    “Getting” grandma is serious business! 🙂

    Because I ( after reading your stuff for awhile now ) know that you people are nuts! 🙂

    I wish you were my neighbor…

    I love this! I also love to ‘imagine’ with my grand kids and its the best when they ‘get’ me and play along. However, after reading Lisa’s post about the family fibber, I’m trying to be more careful with it. Great story! Thanks for linking with me.
