Ramblings of a Sleepy Mind

Every night when we put Sam to bed, we end our ritual by snuggling him for a bit to (hopefully) help him calm down and drift off to sleep. We then give him a hug and a kiss and tell him, "See you in the AM," with the vain hope he'll stay in bed until the AM.

Last night, Joy whispered the phrase and then started to walk out when Sam said, "Mama, you won't see me in the AM."

Sidetracked from her path to the door, Joy responded, "That would make me very sad, Sam."

"Why?" came the inevitable three-year-old reply.

"Because I love you and want to see you tomorrow."

"Well, you'll get to see me in the S-A-M."

I finally have Omolara sleeping through the night, but I made the mistake of telling her mommy was going downstairs. The other night at 4 in the morning I hear the alarm go off and run downstairs to find my very brave daughter crying on the couch, looking for mommy.
