A Lesson in Sharing

After all of the crap I've been through this week I decided to treat myself to a much deserved new pillow. I've been using the same once since my first year of college and it has lost all of it's once desirable traits. 

Finn was with me in the pillow isle and upon choosing my new pillow, Finn promptly took it and started running. Well, it was probably more of a waddle since the pillow was bigger than him. When he couldn't run anymore, he threw the pillow to the floor and tested it out for himself. 

We got home and got the kids upstairs to start bedtime. I tossed my new pillow onto the bed so I could go find a clean case. Finn once again claims it as his own. Mathew remarks at how comfortable it looks and steals it from Finn. 

I then hear, "This is a good pillow."

"I know. That's why I bought it."

"You can never have too many good pillows."

"You want one? I'll go get one tomorrow."

"You better make that three."

"Three more pillows? Do we really need that many?" 

I get my pillow covered and lie down to nurse Finn. Maeve snuggles up next to me and says "Mom, my pillow is too bumpy."

Never mind the fact that Maeve never sleeps on a pillow or that Mathew sleeps on a $100 pillow. 

Maeve is currently asleep on my new pillow and Mathew is headed to Target to buy three more.
