sacred

Night time routine:

read books
brush teeth
kisses
say "nigh nigh" to everything/one
pray
sing

Tonight I was at the final step of the night time routine. This is when I lay my head next to her on the pillow, and we look at each other and I whisper/sing primary songs. She usually puts her soft, slightly sweaty, most-of-the-time slobbery hand on my face and slowly will close her eyes.
I love it.
Tonight I realized how sacred of a time night time is.

I'm such a nermal because when I read the title I thought it said scared. Then when I was reading I was like "wait how is this scary" then I figured it out, I'm such a dork ;) I totally agree with you on that. I love going in and tucking in my girls before I go to bed, it's so perfect!

I know exactly what you mean. Its hard for me when Tyler puts Lucy to bed, I feel like that is "our" time. Thats about the only time that she will sit still and talk to me, and listen to me. The joys and Loves of being a Mother. It never ends :)

I thought I would pass this on since you've been concerned about blog safety. My friend posted this and I I've started some of the clean up on my blog. I didn't even realize some of the dumb mistakes I was making. Hopefully this can help you out too. Blog safety- http://jjandbethsines.blogspot.com/2010/02/words-from-wisenot-me-somebody-else-out.html
