Dan put Jonah to bed tonight but I decided a little while later to go in and crawl in his bed with him just to snuggle for a while. He was fading but perked up when I walked in.
Me: Jonah, what was the best part of your day?
J: When we took Max on the long walk.
Me: That was yesterday. What about today.
J: When I made my bracelet in Sunday School.
Me: That was three weeks ago. What about today.
J: Ummmm, can I just tell you what the sad part of my day was?
Me: Sure, but we are going to come back to the best part, okay?
J: Okay, well the sad part was when you made me take a nap but I wasn't tired so I didn't even close my eyes. I was so sad!
Me: I'm sorry you were sad but you were so sleepy.
J: Let's talk about happy things now!
Me: Well, Guess who is flying here all the way from Vidalia on Tuesday?
J: The airplane?
Me: Um, yeah, but guess who will be on that plane? CLIFF AND BEPPA!!!
J: WHAT?? They are coming to see me? Is he bringing our boat?
Me: No, he can't bring a boat on an airplane.
J: Maybe we can just get one from Target when he gets here.
J: Oh, mommy?
Me: Yes, baby?
J: I just remembered, this is the best part of my day!
Me: (crying) Mine too buddy, mine too!
