The Best Part of Day

Last night could not have been a better night. The husband was working so I guess perhaps it would have been better had he been home but overall it was pretty darn close to perfect. As is our custom, right around 7:00pm we all head up to the "big bed." SB crawled atop our bed and proceeded to shed his clothing until he could declare himself to be a "naked baby." While he undressed I changed QT into her jammies. She laughed and smiled and then we settled into the rocking chair. Together we read Guess How Much I Love You and Goodnight Moon and then I put her in her crib where she quietly fell asleep. SB was waiting for me so I got him into his pj's and we watched half an episode of the Backyardigans and a short Wonder Pets. Both are hard to stomach but it's easier to watch children's programming when you have your child cuddling with you. After our tv break we headed into SB's room to read stories. He scooches in real close and I put my arm around him and read him stories. More so now he will "read" the books to me or at least read along with me. When we finished the last book he turned to me and said "I love you Mommy" and then he gave me a great big hug and went and laid down in his bed.

It was the perfect night.
