Late afternoon as Joey and I were about to sleep.
Me: Joey, you can go to sleep. Mommy will sleep beside you and take care of you.
Joey: Are you not going anywhere?
Me: Not today. I’m staying home with you all day. But tomorrow, mommy needs to go to work.
Joey: Mom, can you not stay with me at home all the time?
Me: Ok, maybe you can ask Santa for Christmas to let mommy stay with you all the time.
Joey: But I want a helicopter for Christmas!
Me: Do you want the helicopter more than mommy to stay with you?
Me: speechless again, thinking, oh well, at least he knows how to prioritize.
