Mean mom woke up her sleeping boy hoping to capture a rare moment on tape--the discovery of what's under the pillow.
What's cuter than a groggy kid?
I think Theo didn't open the envelope right away because he already knew what was in there, since it's always the same thing. Just knowing the envelope was there was enough for him. I adore the double take he did when he remembered it was morning and realized what that meant, and made a dive under the pillow.
