Looking out for number one

B has woken up with small bug bites all over his body.

At bedtime:

B — Did you wash my sheets?

Mom — Yes.  In really hot water.

B — The bugs are gone?

Mom — I think so.  Are you nervous?

B — Yes.

Mom — I’ll come and check on you later on tonight, while you’re sleeping.  If I notice any new bug bites, I’ll take you to my bed with me.  Is that okay?

B — Yes.

R — But not me!

Mom — What?  Why?

R — Because!  If he has bugs then he’ll take them to your bed and then I’ll get them, too!

Mom — So it’s okay if I get his bugs, but not you?

R — Yes!  I know you can take care of yourself.
