I love a good couch pillow. We have a bunch on our big leather sofa. Big E loves to play with them. He launches them over the back, at me, at Doggie Yoy, and of course, at his most favorite target, poor, defenseless, Little E.
For a few months now Mr. Yoy has been suggesting we get a pillow for Big E's crib. Mr. Yoy can't understand why this kid doesn't have a pillow. My theory on this is that he doesn't know any better and is sleeping just fine pillow free. It's not like he sleeps like a normal person. He usually has his booty in the air, his legs through the bars of the crib, and 27 stuffed animals covering his face. A pillow will just complicate things.
Alas, at BB&B yesterday, Mr. Yoy insisted we buy this kid a little pillow. This morning I got Big E's new pillow all set up. New pillowcase on and it was ready for use.
Nap time rolled around and I put Big E in his crib. His new pillow was in there just waiting to be used. Big E took one look at the pillow and shouted at me, NO PILLOW!
He then picked it up and, in a moment of toddler rage, hurled it out of the crib. The little pillow landed at my feet. I pick my battles with this kid and I knew this was definitely not worth fighting over. I about-faced and walked out.
Have a good, pillow-free nap, Big E.
