You’re okay, you’ve got your night light and water and books and lovey.
Nothing has brought me more joy as a mother than hearing the things I’m teaching Lucas repeated back to me. I get such a thrill when I can see in his eyes that something has clicked; a new shape or color has been committed to memory or an additional lyric to a song has been learned. I love witnessing his exploratory mind hard at work taking in everything that he encounters and retains. It’s as though all of my hard work as a parent is being paid off.
Your humidifier is on and we’ll be back to check on you in a little bit.
I can’t hide my smile when Lucas uses “please” and “thank you” without being prompted.
I’m tickled every time he blesses me after a sneeze.
My heart is all a-flutter when Lucas tells me he loves me first and asks for hugs.
This morning, I walked into the living room and heard him comforting his Elmo doll just the way his father and I do at bedtime.
Mommy and Daddy love you so much. Have a good sleep.
It was our bedtime routine verbatim. Not a day goes by that I am not simply amazed by my son.
What has your child done lately that has stopped you in your tracks?
