"I just want to stay here forever."

Zander says this at least once every day. Both Brad and I are the lucky recipients and usually it goes something like this:

Parent: "One minute until bath time." [Giving warnings to help with transitions.]

Parent: "Bath time! Do you want to walk up the stairs or be carried?" [Giving options so he has some power in the process.]

Zander [laying down on floor, not buying the choices or options]: "I just want to stay here forever."

*****

After nightly book-reading ritual, which takes place in our bed:

Parent: "Time for songs."

Zander [laying down on our bed, pulling covers up]: "I just want to stay here forever."

It was cute the first time. Not so cute the fortieth time. Sigh.
