Snuggle Time

Our "station night" bed time routine usually consists of a bath for the kids where Super Son gets to hang in the tub and play while I dress and put Miss Thing down for the night. Occassionally the pruney fingers and toes get to be too much and he gets out and gets dressed on his own. Last night was one of those and Super Son peeked in to tell me he was going to read a book in his room while I finished up with Miss Thing. A few minutes later I went to get him for our "Mommy Time" and found him on the floor in his room crying. In his lap was a board book that had his picture (as a 10 month old) inserted into various zoo animal bodies. "Super Son, honey, what's wrong?" I asked "I miss being a baby" as he pointed at the picture of him as a little guy. I gave him a big hug and we talked about all the cool things that only big guys can do. Including having snuggle time and ice cream in Mommy's bed after Miss Thing had gone to sleep which he gladly accepted. Four is such a big boy, but not so big to miss a chance for a good snuggle every chance you can.
