My kid can milk bedtime for all it's worth because he knows I'm a sucker for his snuggles. This kid loves his Momma and I love to drive my Husband crazy and tell him that Momma is the only woman he'll ever love. Now, yes, I know better, and I promise I'll quit saying it when he gets interested in girls. As long as I approve of them of course (which I won't, and at that point we'll talk about therapy).
His - Oh come on, you are powerless against me face.
So after three books too many last night, he asked for a Bible story, because when he wants one more story he knows I won't say no to the
Bible. This is one of the ones we have. I love it too, simple one page for all the popular stories.
Me: Jesus Visits Mary and Martha Him: Where's Joseph? Me: (I die. He blows my mind.) Who is Joseph? Him: With Mary. Me: Oh, Mary's Husband. Him: Husband? I be your husband Momma? Me: My Husband, like Daddy? Him: Yes Momma, I love you.
Me: (Dies from sweetness.)
I'm just always blown away by how much he remembers and pays attention. I didn't try to sort out Mary from Mary but just his sweetness was able to melt away a rather wretched week.
