Today, on the way home from taking TD to school, I was struggling to remain awake. I am already not a morning person and TD likes to have the car heat blasting in the morning. It is a deadly combination. (smile).
When we returned, I did something I haven’t done for several months: I went to bed to take a nap and let big boy watch a cartoon.
Now, here is a shocker – we have a TV in our bedroom! Ok, have you recovered your gasp? (Jeff needs to watch a little TV at night to fall asleep…he has a favorite sitcom that helps him sleep at night). So, I let big boy watch a cartoon next to me as I napped so I could keep my eyes…ahem….ears open.
About 20 minutes in, I knew I needed to get up. I started to turn and big boy asked me, “Are you ok?” Yes, I’m just sleepy.” He turned to me, hugged me and said, “Dear Jesus, please help Miss Dana today and help her wake up. She is tired. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.”
Now, how do you wrap up that much cuteness in one person? I had to wake up after that!
