FOR THE LOVE OF .....

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.

  1. Okay, being childless and grandchild-less, I can't relate to this. LOL Well, the moonlight walk in the snow I can...very romantic!

    1. I was amazed at how big brother volunteered to go in the dark to get the precious comfort items. And that Grandma was there to soothe their little souls. Awesome empathy!

    1. He is such a good brother. They both are very caring of each other. Unless they are fighting!

  3. Ain't life sweet? Braeden going to retrieve Deacon's lambie is the stuff legends are made of. Big brothers are the best.

    1. And he is usually the one who is afraid of the dark!! But comforting his little brover was more important.
