A conversation with Jacob

“Always kiss your children goodnight – even if they’re already asleep.”  ~H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

—————-

Here’s something I forgot to mention, but it was so special I just wanted to share it.

As I’ve mentioned, last Friday was my birthday.  (Not trying to milk any more birthday wishes out of anybody here.)

It’s late and I’m tucking Jacob in to bed.  He is so snuggly at bedtime and I always go in and get my hugs and kisses.  I just love it!! 

I lean over.  We’re forehead to forehead.  After a couple of seconds, he pulls back and looks at me.  He pauses, cocks his head.  Then says in the most quiet, precious voice, “Mom, did you have a good birthday?”

Yes, buddy, I sure did.  Thanks to you. 

What a precious boy.

    It always feels good to know your kiddo was thinking about you in a completely unshelfish manner.

    Precious is right!
    And I just looked through, once again, your Bday Weekend 07 pics. The "my babies making me breakfast" and "best scrambled eggs ever" are absolutely wonderful. Our children are our gemstones.
