Conversations at Bedtime

"What a long day.  [sigh]"

"What was your favorite part of the day?"

"Going to see Ana Banana."

"My favorite part was when you were singing in the car"**

"I love singing."

She is laying in her bed, I am sitting in the rocking chair.  There is a long pause of silence, I am hoping she is drifting to sleep.

"Mom?"

"Yes"

"You are the greatest mom ever."

"You are the bestest daughter ever."

"I remember you singing to me when I was in your tummy."

"I remember singing to you when you were in my tummy. Thank you for reminding me that I should sing more."

"Good night mommy."

"Good night."


**My favorite part of the day was when were driving to meet Ana and she was singing along to Judy Blue Eyes unprompted (and I don't mean the easy part either).  It actually made me feel good and happy about everything in my life and that everything will work out.  The power of a four year old singing.
