H: Yes, J?
J: Can you give me a wall?
H: O ... kay? (I go upstairs and pretend to give J a wall ... and one for each of his many toys. Then I leave.)
J: (Singsong) Crab, crab, crab, crab ... (Bang! Bang! Bang!)
H: J, what are you doing?
H: What is that banging noise?
J: That's my lobster.
H: What is Lobster doing?
J: He's banging.
H: Okay. Well, can you please ask Lobster to stop?
J: Okay. (Pause) Daddy, can you give Lobster a wall?
H: Lobster has a wall.
J: And for my bears?
H: Bears have a wall too.
J: But in my teddy bear hammock?
H: Later, J. Please go to sleep.
J: Okay ... (Singing) Mahna mahna ... do doo de Lobster ... (Spoken) I have to go to sleep ... Okay ... That's no problem ...
J is still upstairs talking. He is now trying to decide who is the fairest of us all. Judging from his conversation, Grandma & Grandpa are in the lead.
J will not be napping today.
