Last night, Harper told me she wanted a zippy-sack.  Not quite sure what this was, I asked her what it was for.  She said that you sleep in it and it keeps you warm.  I finally realized and confirmed that she meant a sleeping bag.  "Yes, a zippy-sack!" she said.  I told her I had one from my previous camping and hiking days.  She very seriously told me that we needed at least two since there were two children in our family.  She asked me why I had a zippy-sack and I told her that I used it to go camping.  She said that it had been a long time since we went camping (like never since I've had kids) and that we needed to go this summer.  She also told me she wanted a zippy-sack with a dinosaur on it.  She is specific, isn't she?

Zippysack is actually the brand name of an overpriced blanket/fitted sheet/"sleeping bag"-type thing. She's probably seen the commercials on tv, & yes they have one that is a dinosaur. You better "google it", as she might be disappointed if you produce a regular "boring" ol' sleeping bag. I'll bet she is trying to figure out why & how you used one when you went camping.
