Go the _____ to Sleep.

So I say to the 4 year old as we're trying to go to sleep, "Be the bed." (Caddyshack reference put to good use.)

He lays there for a while then starts singing (Lady Gaga).

I say, "You're not being the bed. You can't sing and be the bed at the same time."

So he's quiet a while and then he whispers, "Are we done being the bed now?"

"No," I explain, patiently, "we've got to be the bed until we feel like we are one with the bed, enmeshed in the bed itself, and then we'll be asleep."

He gets right up close to my face and says, "That doesn't make any sense."
