Nathan Quote of the Week

Nathan had a nightmare last night.  It happens periodically and when it does, he usually comes scurrying for our room to sleep in our bed.

I dutifully made room for him and let him crawl under the covers.  Shortly, we were all asleep again, my husband snoring away like a chainsaw cutting through a knot.  (He denies he snores but we all know it's true.)

As I woke up, I had a little hand curled around my shoulder and I thought that this is one of the nicest ways to wake up.  Not the greatest way to sleep, but a nice way to wake up.

Nathan opened his little eyes and gave me a hug.  I asked him if he was feeling better.

He nodded and said: But I'm still feeling scared.

I hugged him and asked: Do you want to sleep in Mommy and Daddy's bed again tonight?

He paused to consider: No.  Your bed is too noisy with Daddy in it.
