This evening, Ari was doing his regular routine of thwarting bedtime. Wilhelm and I tried to sing to him, rub his back, but he just screamed and kvetched and he was not willing to go to sleep.

Wil left the room to let Ari and I have some mommy and son time. Unfortunately, my child continued to scream.

All of a sudden, Uncle Egreck (my cat) jumped up onto the bed to see what was going on.

In desperation, I pointed to Egreck and said:
“Look Ari! Look who it is! Kitty!”
Ari stopped crying, crawled over to Uncle Egreck, curled up next to him and fell asleep.

As soon as Ari was asleep, Uncle Egreck relocated to another section of the bed as if to say:
“My work is done here.”
Clearly, my cat is a better parent than I am.
