Don't Let the Bedbugs Bite

Last night, Mimi (Riley's grandmother, my mother) and G watched Riley. When we arrived at home, Mom gave me the low-down on how everything went (great, of course!), and finished her sentence with, "Well, I guess I should tell you since he's probably going to tell you in the morning anyway."

Thinking to myself: Uh, Mom, what did you do?

Mom: "We did the usual bedtime routine and I was closing his bedroom door, I said, 'Goodnight...sleep tight...don't let the bedbugs bite.'"

Riley: "Huh?"

Mom: "Goodnight!" (in a trying-to-make-you-forget-about-what-I-just-said voice)

Riley: "What?" (in his I-don't-miss-a-thing voice)

Mom: "Goodnight!!!"

Riley: "Bugs?"

Mom: "No, Riley, there are no bugs in here, they are ALL outside." (she says, as she leaves her grandson alone in a dark room with bugs!!)
I laughed so hard when Mom told me this! The shocker is, Riley hasn't said a word about it today.

March 11, 2009 Update:

Until tonight, Riley hasn't said a word about those pesky bedbugs. Tonight while I was away at Bunco, this was the conversation he had with his Daddy:

Daddy: "Goodnight Riley!"
Riley: "Goodnight Daddy!"
Daddy: "I love you so much."
Riley: "I love you so much."
Daddy: "See you in the morning."
Riley: "Okay Daddy....don't let the bugs bite you!!!"
