My husband has this recurring backache, blame it on the modern working culture sitting for hours in front of the computer. No wonder they say sitting is the new smoking. Even the spring mattress at home is no respite for him and so yesterday he decided to sleep on the floor on the mat, hoping that might help.
Smera was not really pleased with the new arrangement, as she wanted daddy next to her. Finally I convinced her that the princess and queen will sleep on the bed and daddy – the common man will sleep on the floor.
The princess idea was deal-maker proposition and she happily got onto the bed and was soon fast asleep. Around 4 am this morning the hubby took her for an early wee-wee and got her back put her to bed.
Even in deep sleep little Smera had something really important to instruct to her daddy.
So in her firmest voice, with eyes closed, she tells the hubby, “Daddy now you go and sleep on the floor!”.
