Funny thing tonight

(and most nights, really!)

I was putting the youngest to bed.  I kind of have to pretend I am sleeping and not talk to him while he tosses and turns, etc.  The whole ordeal - but not really an "ordeal."  It's just what he needs to do.  (Middle son used to request that I hold his hand before he fell asleep each night -- to each his own routine.)   It takes him literally less than 5 minutes to fall asleep.  Regardless, I still need to lay down and pretend I am asleep while he falls asleep.

So... there I am laying down and pretending to sleep.  He tosses and turns... then turns to me and says he loves me and hugs me.  (Mind you, we've already done the whole hugs, kisses, love you routine after the bed time story).  I pretend not to hear him -- because, again, I am asleep.  So he says it again and kisses me. (I'm about to lose it here!)  Alas, I hang in there... So he gives up and knows that I will not respond (because remember, I'm supposed to be asleep!).  And what do you think he does?!  He moves my lips for me and says in a very deep voice (didn't know my voice was THAT deep!)... and says, "I love you too."  Then he turns over a few more times, kicks the blanket off his bed and falls asleep!  And that was that!

I get out of his bed and run outside to laugh -- I needed that laugh this evening!  That boy, he tries my patience EVERYDAY!  :0

Gotta love him, right?!  Yep, I LOVE him!

  2. How did you not bust up in laughter as soon as he did that? That's adorable!
