Mr. B was home sick for 4 days three weeks ago, and during that time I said a lot of “Thomas, we need to practice using our inside voices because daddy is sleeping”. So now, anytime Mr. B – or anyone, for that matter – is not in Thomas’s direct line of sight, they’re sleeping. Every morning: “Shhh. Dada sleeping”, or if he can’t find his beloved Corduroy, “Cor-roy sleeping”, etc. So, I’ve been working on that issue so that Thomas doesn’t think that lying in bed is an acceptable way to spend one’s day, so now we have a lot of “Dada’s at work today, not sleeping”. So now, in T’s mind, everyone’s at work…or sleeping.
