Sleepy Time Talks
Most nights we read a few stories before bed with our kids. Then we put on music and sit with them for 3 songs before leaving the room. This gives them a chance to settle, and us a chance to hold on to those snuggly moments that are all too soon going to disappear.
Sometimes we ask what their favorite part of the day was, sometimes I just ask what they happen to be thinking at that moment, sometimes they just say random stuff.
This post is going to be on going and I will try to remember to keep coming back to include some of the talks we have.
The first funny moment was from when we went camping in August. I was tucking the kids in, in the tent, and Nate (who’s 5) looks up at me and smiles and says “Wouldn’t it be funny if the trees were made of noodles?”…brief pause…he smiles and then giggles “it’d be a noddle forest!”…I couldn’t help but burst out laughing…how they heck did he get to that thought? Noodle trees…noodle forest…..he is a noodle..LOL
