Sleep aids, Danny style

Every night after we put Danny to bed, we hear the steady clank of metal on metal, little Matchbox cars being taken out of and put back into a basket on his bed. Then in the morning, I find Danny fast asleep next to cars either lined up end on end or set perfectly side by side on his bed.

This morning over breakfast, Jim commented that he needed to get back into his usual routine of getting up at 4:30 starting this Monday. Since Jim has been home this week, he's been staying up really late. Jim has one more week at home and wasn't sure he could start getting back to his normal sleep routine cold turkey.

Danny perked up and said, "You need a car show."

"Is that what helps you sleep?" Jim asked.

"Uh huh," he replied.

So there you have it. If you can't sleep, line up your cars in a neat little row and call it a car show. He has my OCD tendencies for sure.
