Lately bedtime has gotten really hard. Em will only go to sleep if I am in the rocking chair. “Mommy,I sleep, you rock”. I tried leaving and the screams. Oh the screams. For now I am rocking. We’ll see what happens later (such as next week when school starts….).
But last night my tiny manipulator got out of bed to rock with me for a few minutes of cuddling. I asked if she as ready to go to bed yet and she said, “Not yet Mommy, one more minute”. Em loves saying one more minute… But the kicker – then she snuggled into my chest and said, “I just want to be in your arms”. And I melted into a big puddle of mommy.
