Bedtime conversations

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.

Me: HA!

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!

Ha! That's great, if it's Beppa buying it, it's Toys R Us. Evidently Target has the market for boats! Too cute. Can't wait to see you guys!
