Comfort Water

This is a post about charming quirks.

I certain have some. Quirks that it. "Charming" is in the eye of the beholder.

Each of my boys has 'em.

One of Little Brother's that amuses me has come up a few times this week.

Night water.

I'm sure it's very common that kids want a drink of water before going to bed.

Little Brother is no different.

He often pops his head out of his room to ask for water.

That part's not quirky, but what he does with it is.


That's right, I said nothing.

He does nothing with the water.

He doesn't drink it.

He doesn't even want it in his bed (screams if you do).

Nope, he just wants a cup of water to sit on the floor at his bedside all night long and start growing bacteria.

We haven't gone so far as to videotape this, but when you come into his room in the morning, the cup hasn't moved and the straw is unbent, so you know he hasn't touched it.

Some kids have a blankie (Little Brother has that, too), some kids have a stuffed animal or toy in bed,...

and Little Brother has his comfort water.

Whatever kids the kid to fall asleep, I guess.

What are some of your favorite quirks about your kids?

See you on Fatherhood Friday,

  1. When CY Aunt-E was very small, she always played with her hair while she was drinking whatever she had in her sippy cup. If I put her hair up in a pony tail before breakfast, she wasn't very happy because she didn't have her hair to play with. (She played with mine too)
