(We set up the air mattress in the living room for the kids to sleep on this weekend while their grandparents were visiting, and Rowan has been jumping on it non-stop.)
Rowan: I need you to help me build a tower!
Rowan: I need you to help me build a TOWER!
Me: A tower of what?
Rowan: (getting frustrated) A TOWER!!!!
Rowan: I need to build a tower so I can jump and land on my back!
Me: Ok, I’m trying to understand, but…what?
Rowan: I NEED TO BUILD A TOWER SO I CAN JUMP AND LAND ON MY BACK!
Me: Um…ok, so you want to build a tower of pillows on the air mattress so you can jump off the couch and land on your back?
Rowan: No, but that’s awesome!
