He also knows how to make me putty in his hands. Tonight, he was fighting going to bed so I told him if he didn't lay down and go to sleep that I was going to leave him to go night-night by himself. He didn't lay down so I left him in his room and you would have thought that he was never going to see me again. He cried and cried. So I told him to go lay down and I would come back into his room. We laid there in silence and I thought he was almost asleep. Then I heard a quiet, little voice say, "Don't leave me Mommy, ok? Deal?" Putty. So I kissed him and said I would never leave, leave. I might be gone for a little while but I always come back. He was quiet for a little while and then he said, "Mommy? Hold me." Putty. He knows what he's doing.

Yesterday I surprised John with a stay-cation. I asked my parents to pick C up from school and then he stayed the night with them. John and I went for a hike, went out to lunch, did some shopping, and then had a lovely dinner. Then I slept until 7:30! Ahhhh! We had a great time but I missed C. It was the longest I had ever been away from him... 30 hours.
