It doesn't matter if you've already got them bathed and in their jammies so they can be carted off to bed after the half-time show. Tie their own Terrible Towel round their neck, and they've got a superhero cape (maybe they can pretend to be Mike Tomlin). Or just let them curl up on the couch with their new lovey, drifting to sleep with sweet dreams of the Lombardi Trophy.
