Braeden sleeps at the foot of my bed so that we can get to bed early on school days. Also, we we get up we don't wake up the others! One parent sleeps with Deacon in the king bed and the other parent sleeps in the boys room on a bunk bed. Odd, I know, but on the days Kate works, she uses the boys room. Then they switch.
One of our first snow nights, Kate and Jesse decided to go for a moonlight walk. We three were down for the night. Soon we heard knocking on my bedroom door and fearful shouting of Gramma, Gramma ... Braeden jumped to open the door and little guy ran right into my arms.
"No Momma, no Dadda and I scared."
Braeden said "go get your lambie and your bobba!"
"No, I too scared."
Don't worry, I'll get them ... and bravely went into the dark bedroom.
Both boys climbed into my twin bed and we snuggled (as I texted Mom) and Deacon asked me to sing songs. I made up some silly songs and sang quietly (both giggling appropriately). The parents were home in 10 minutes.
The best ten minutes of my life so far.
