Tonight was a serious test of patience at bedtime. Kaleb is usually so easy and we have our routine down pact. But I guess it's proof that even a great routine sometimes need modification. Anyways, eventually just went back to the basics that I know...
... that's right, I rocked my 4 year old to sleep, AND I LOVED IT! I even sang (in my horribley off key voice) the only lullaby I know, the same one I used to sing to him when he was a baby, "You Are My Sunshine."
For just a few minutes he felt like a tiny baby again. I watched him sleep for awhile. I miss those days so much. Although I love to watch him learn and grow. I love that we are able to share and do so much together now. Yet, there is just something about holding a baby in your arms that just never gets old.
I think Kaleb and I both will have an amazing nights sleep.
