  • Before bed tonight Brendan told me I should go to bed at 10:00. Then he told me that when he grows up that he's going to go to bed at 10:00 like me, that he's going to watch TV and play on the computer at night like me (nice to see what he thinks I do all the time when he's asleep, lol), that he's going to go to work in Manhattan like me, and get off the train at Houston St. like me, etc. I just thought this was so sweet.

    And the last two nights we've had much better bedtimes. For a few months at bedtime he's started in with me ever night that he wants me to stay with him, that he misses me when I leave him at night, that he doesn't want me to leave him. I would lay down with him at night if he'd actually go to sleep with me there, but he just plays. But the last two nights he's put himself to bed. Seriously, he won't even let me in the room. He turns on his air conditioner and his humidifier, pulls the blanket down that I put to cover his window (the blinds don't keep the light out well enough) and climbs into bed with his blankie and stuffies. I miss the hugs and cuddling before bed but it has meant two nights of his not making me feel so bad about leaving him.

  • awe he is just sooo sweet. and what a big boy about getting himself ready for bed. I just started last night with having her help me set up the noise machines and putting the fans on in their rooms to help her get ready knowing its time for bed

  • It is so sweet he wants to be like mum, right down to taking the same train! It is sad when they don't want to cuddle though, I know Spencer has done it to me before and it breaks my heart, but I do it because it is all part of growing up I can still mope about it though
