My family is here in town. Mom, dad, and brother all pulled up in Bus Shanty II about 12 hours ago. We’re gonna party like, well, like lame-ass family where you mostly eat a bunch and watch movies, I guess.
My husband and I have been sleeping with our three year old between us. It’s like the world’s best teddy bear. The other morning at about 5 AM she stirred and put her arms around me and said, “Mama, do you like pumpkins?” and I said, “Yes Sophie, I do.” She sighed and went back to sleep. Later that day she told me she’d been dreaming about Halloween.
A couple hours ago in bed she surfaced as I pulled covers around me (it takes forever for me to warm up in bed!) and said – in the softest, most scratchy little voice, “Mama, wake up, I want to tell you somefeeg”. Poor little tyke – drifted back off to sleep before she could divulge any more.
