After posting a couple of times about my son's frustrating behaviour, I thought I should balance it out by letting the world know that in the last couple of days, he has been adorable, funny, cute and especially sweet.
While getting dressed this morning (which happens by getting one arm out of his jammies, bouncing a couple of times, getting the other arm out, bouncing a few more times.....EVERY morning) he surprised me by saying:
"I'm very grateful that you are my mommy!" followed by, "I love you, mommy!" This landed him several hugs and kisses and turned my knees to jelly. He told me he loved me several times today, in fact. He always tells me he loves me when I first say it to him, but rarely does he say it first.Tonight after our usual night time ritual, he called me back to his room to tell me:
"Mommy, I'm going to come into your room and sleep with you tonight."
"No, you are going to sleep in your own bed tonight," I reply (although not so firmly - which he knows).
"Nope, mommy. I'm going to sneak into your room and climb into bed with you!" he says with a grin.
Of course I laugh. And he likely will try to sneak in with us. And I'll let him. Because, after all, he LOVES ME and is GRATEFUL that I'm his mommy.
There is a good chance he'll get his way quite often when he speaks to me like he did today.
Oh, how I love my boy.
NOTE: **My boy did sleep with us beginning @ 4:15 a.m. He didn't even have to try to sneak in with us. All he had to do was wet his bed. Yep. Much more pleasant to deal with than merely sneaking in with us.
