Just For You, Buddy

I've mentioned a zillion times that I'm keeping my almost 3 year old little boy a baby for as long as possible. One of the things I haven't given up yet is rocking him before I lay him down to sleep. Since it's gotten cold out agin, he's been wearing sleepers. And he still sucks a pacifier in his crib. So when I rock him, I've got this warm little person, all snuggled up on me, sucking his paci and stroking my hair.

Tonight I was rocking him, and he said "Why do you have shoulders?"

"Uhhh, well, it's because...." ??? How do I answer that? Especially when I'm almost completely asleep myself?

"So I can lay down?" he asks.

Yes, buddy. That's exactly why God gave Mamma shoulders. That's the best reason in the world.

What precious moments with your son :) So cute.

Thanks for the sweet comments on Brandon and telling us what Ryan said :) It is always nice to hear. Sorry I won't be able to tell you bye in person. I am doing the last few days solo as Andrew is out in CA and we just slept in on Sunday (our lives have been SO rushed).

But I am glad we can keep up on each other's lives via blogs and fb. And we do plan to come back to NC to visit :)

So precious! I am sure I will want to keep my last one a baby as long as possible.

Thanks for stopping by. Settler of Catan can a little competitive but for the most part you are just working on your own settlements so not to much attacking each other like in Risk.
