Sometimes It's Good To Be the Mommy

The other night Sean was having trouble falling asleep. Since this is such a rarity nowadays, I don't mind resting next to him in his bed to help ease the transition. When I settled next to him, he sighed, snuggled close, and said, "I feel so much better when you lie next to me." A few minutes later, another contented sigh, followed by "I love you, Mommy."

When it seemed that he had fallen asleep, I shifted my position in prelude to getting up. Sean was still awake after all. "No! Don't go! I want to visit with you for a little while longer!"

What was I saying in my previous post about needing periodic ego boosts?
