SCENE 1

Me: Oh look, my sweet baby has fallen softly to sleep while suckling at my bosom. I will lay him gently in his crib for a restorative nap.
Ezra: EPIC STORM OF UNREMITTING RAGE AND BOUNDLESS SORROW!

SCENE 2

Me: Oh look, my sweet baby has fallen softly to sleep while suckling at my bosom. I will lay him gently in his crib for a restorative nap.
Ezra: BABABABABABABA (“I have a new trick! Let me show it to you! I can stand up! In my crib!”)

SCENE 3

Me: Oh look, my sweet baby has fallen softly to sleep while suckling at my bosom. I will lay him gently in his crib for a restorative nap.
Ezra: (gently sleeping)
Me: Hey! Awesome! He’s napping. I will quietly leave the room and go about my business.
Ezra: BABABABABABABA (“I have awoken suddenly and can’t remember if I’ve shown you my new trick yet. It is so cool! Come back and look at me! I am standing in my crib!”)
Me: Thanks, son, but I have indeed seen your trick. How about you lie back down for that nap?
Ezra: EPIC STORM OF UNREMITTING RAGE AND BOUNDLESS SORROW!
