Play with me

Mommy... come play with me... we can have a tea party....

(a tea party? huh? who are you and what have you done with my train obsessed boy?)

Okay. Hang on a second. You get everything set up and I'll be there. (lies, all lies)

Mommy, you need to come to the tea party. Everything is ready for you. I saved you the biggest cup because you're really, really big.

grrrr. okay. What are we having? (still on the couch, still on the internet)

Ice cream. Mommy, you need to really come and play. Not sit on the couch and pretend to play. You did that yesterday. Today, come and play with me.

Oops. Time for afternoon quiet time, kiddo.... let's go upstairs...

(I may have a small addiction to the internet, and maybe a small issue with playing tea parties)
