So for the first four years of Luke's life, I layed (laid?) down with him every night until he went to sleep. Since then, for the past four years, he's asked me often to just stay with him for a little bit! Well, I'm scared to start it back, knowing where it will lead! But lately he's been asking more often, so I have maybe once a week or so.. Last night, he asked again and said, "Why don't you just lay down with me every Wed?" And I said, "If I do that, you have to promise to not ask ever during the rest of the week." He said, "Well try it for the rest of the month." And I said, "Isn't this the last Wed of the month?" And he just grinned! Smart boy!
Anyway, After I laid down with him he said this:
"Hey Mom! You know when you shut your eyes, sometimes everything goes black and you can see a picture? Well, when I just close my eyes I saw you. You had on your black vest with your purple shirt (which I wear often) and you were laying in the green grass flat on your back with your arms like this: (and proceeded to show me how I was laying in the grass with my arms straight out!) AND you had a HUGE smile on your face!"
Wasn't that sweet?! Ahh he can be sweet! I've got to add that to his journal! :)
