I know it’s been a long time since I posted any content on this blog, but my kids are growing up a bit and I find I have (slightly) more time on my hands.
Our youngest child is now three years old. Unlike many others of his age, he has never resisted his bedtime. In fact, he has a grand time rushing through an increasingly lengthy string of goodnight sayings to each member of the family. These currently include: good night, sleep tight, sweet dreams, night night, I love you, and see you in the morning.
However, the speed at which he rattles these phrases off at makes it sounds more like – “Goodnightsleeptightsweetdreamsnightnightiloveyouseeyouinthemorning!”
It is usually the last thing he says before he closes his door for the final bedtime story and snuggle with his Mom.
However, the other night he opened the door again seconds after closing it. I waited to see what adorable phrase he was adding to the mix now.
He looked at me with his large ernest eyes and said very quietly, “Our house doesn’t have any ghosts…”
The door began to shut again. Just before it clicked, he cracked it open once more and whispered, “Don’t be scared.”
As I said above, I finally have enough time to start posting some new drawings. Goodness knows I’m not using any of it sleeping anymore.
