Ari and I were sitting on the couch at my parent’s house, when it occurred to me that I was very tired. It’s been a long week, and my first one back at work. Today (of all days) I woke up at 5am and could not go back to sleep. I turned to Ari (as he was watching Blue’s Clues) and said:

“I’m tired.”
“You’re not tired,” he replied “You’re sleepy!”
“Okay.” I acquiesced “Are you sleepy?”
“Yes.” He agreed.
“Do you want to go upstairs?” I asked yawning audibly.
“No.” He said definitively. “I don’t want to go upstairs! I want to sleep on this couch.”
