Jessie and I stepped up the campaign this morning, and we almost had Momma convinced to stay with us instead of going to work. The trick was, we got her to lay back in bed and then we curled up super close and comforting.
Jessie took her feet, and I curled up on her arm and chest. You know, just close enough to stare soulfully into her eyes.
We were SUPER close! We laid there for ages. But finally Momma got up and rushed into her work clothes and out the door. SIGH. Anyone else have suggestions?
