Wishing you sweet dreams tonight and every night...
Bedtime for the littlest one started out as one of those times you try to sear into your memory - a cute little man, dressed up in his chosen attire declaring himself ready to sleep. Little man #1 never plays dress up except for wearing his parent's shoes, so when little man #2 does, it always brings a smile to my face.
It was truly amazing how quickly he went from completely adorable to totally atrocious...all because those crocs he was wearing weren't allowed on the furniture during his bedtime story. So much for an easy and sweet bedtime. Thankfully, I got the picture (too bad it was with my phone and not my camera!) before the meltdown, so when I look back on tonight in ten years...the adorable is what will be remembered.
For any young moms reading, take a deep breath and know that many mommies across the planet just dealt with a toddler tantrum too!
Alas, the tears were mostly due to being tired and soon faded into the soft breathing of a child drifting off into a dream in my arms. Although little boy's laughter is one my favorite sounds, the sound of his deep breathing, fast asleep, is a close second!
