Because of you

I was leaving my son’s room for the third time tonight trying to get him to settle. (I bought him 4 Diary of a Wimpy Kid books for his birthday today and he won’t go to sleep.)

This last time he’s not reading, but the light is still on.

I shut the light off and say “Good night baby, I love you”.

He pops up in bed and he says “Mom! Today was the best day ever. And it’s all because of you.”

Me, in my head, “Don’t cry, don’t cry.”

“Thanks buddy. I love you.”

“I love you too, Mom”

I win parenting, for today.

      Thanks Julie. I’ll be sure to remember this when he’s the age that your kids are now ;-)
