Ok this one is something that you will not fully understand for some time yet, But one day you will, and you’ll probably get chuckle from reading this. As you know, mommy and I shared a bed together that you would invade practically every night. Which that in itself baffles me because when you were an infant, we never brought you into our bed. You always stayed in your bassinet or crib. So is this our payback? 🙂
It never fails that sometime between 10:30 PM and 2:30 AM every night, you’ll wander your way from your bedroom down the hall and into our room. You would jump into our bed and nuzzle your way in between us. And most times you’ll have no recollection of this stroll when we’d ask you about it the next day.
Now one thing you’ll understand when you’re older is that parents enjoy their alone time. They like to chat, talk, and just do adult things. And I can’t even begin to tell you how many of those “moments” were interrupted by the pitter-patter of those little feet. Most times we would hear you before you got to the room, and on a rare occasion you’d walk so silently that it was almost too late.
And because of these moments, we ended up changing our routine. We gave ourselves a specific window of time to enjoy our adult moments, hoping that it was early enough where you wouldn’t come in. Most times it worked. But I have to say you added a ton of pressure to an otherwise enjoyable situation! 🙂 I still love you though Ryan!
