Fantasies of the Middle Child


Yesterday morning, as always, Levi returned to the parental bed for some snuggle time. Mark and I teasingly asked him why he's the world's biggest snuggle bug. Levi's answer started out sweet and then veered into a somewhat frightening glimpse into the zero-sum mentality of a middle child:


It's because I love my mommy, and I'm the only kid!
I'm the only kid!
[now almost growling] I'm the only kid!

[insert menacing Dracula-style laugh]

And I can sleep in Roscoe and Logan's room,
and play with all the Bionicles!

And all the toys are MINE!

[repeat menacing Dracula laugh]
