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.
"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."
**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.
