And this morning…

Monday, 10. February 2014 10:58

Around 6:30 a.m., I watched Alex through the monitor checking out the window (to see if the sun is out). It was still dark, so he tried to lay back down. He then sat back up, quietly thinking. I watched him get up and put his animals on his rocking chair. He sat back in bed. Then, he got up again and opened his door. He came to the kitchen, gave me a hug and kiss, and said “Mommy, the sun is almost out.” I replied with “It still looks dark to me.” Mr. Attitude said, “No, I said ALMOST.” :-P

Middle of the night conversations

Monday, 10. February 2014 10:44

Around 3 a.m. this morning, Alex calls for me and I answered him through the monitor.

Alex – “Did you know that sometimes I like to sleep with my animals, and sometimes I don’t, and sometimes I only want to sleep with Nemo, my shark and Elmo?”
Me – “Yes. And tonight you have your shark and Nemo.”
A – “And Elmo.”
M – “Right, and Elmo. Close your eyes and go back to sleep.”
A – “Why aren’t you laying on the pillow?” (Note – I had put a small pillow in there last night so there was room for my head when he was falling asleep, so that’s what he is talking about.)
M – “Because I am sleeping in my own bed.”
A – “Can you come lay with me?”
M – “No, I’m too tired. I am not getting out of bed.”
A – “Okay. Can you move your pillow out of my bed then?”
M – “No, but you can.”
A – “Okay.”

And he falls back asleep.  So random!

Bathroom eavesdropping

Saturday, 8. February 2014 11:26

Alex (in bath tub): What are you doing,  Daddy?
Ryan: Shaving
A: Are you shaving your beard off?
R: Do you want me to?
A: No!
R: Can I trim it?
A: Yes, and then it will grow back.

I’m glad Alex is on my side!
