The Perfect Night
I had picked up a new Transformers series at the book store this afternoon for T. He was so excited to dig into it that he curled up in dad's spot on the couch and started to read. I just LOVE when my 5 year old reads on his own accord. How could a mom resist? I put the dirty dishes down and quickly hustled over to listen to him read. I was expecting a few pages but he read for 40 minutes on his own. We stopped to get pj's on and then went back to the intriguing story of Autobots vs. Decepticons. And, as if this night couldn't get any better, my little one curled up to listen too. J rested his head on my shoulder while I rested mine on T's. My little guy started to feel heavy on my shoulder, so I took a quick peak and discovered that he had fallen asleep. His brother had read him the bedtime story tonight. What a special way to end an amazing day. And to think that I was complaining about missing my job. Silly me!
