Bedtime conversation...

Because I never want to forget.

Tonight, we read your "cookie book" 3 times and then daddy came and gave you water, hugs and kisses. Then we read "My House" and turned off the light.

You asked to sing "Wheels on the Bus" and then "Itsy Bitsy Spider".

Then you asked to "get in my bed". As soon as I put you in your bed you said, "We forgot to pray!"
I took you back out of your bed and sat you on my lap in the rocker.

Me:        "Dear God, Thank you so much for making Eli. Thank you for giving him to Mommy and Daddy to watch over. Bless him and help him grow big and strong. Keep him healthy. We thank you for all the blessings you have given us. We thank you mostly for your Son, Jesus. For it is your Son's name we pray."
You:       "Amen."

Me:       "I love you, Eli".
You:      "I love you."
Me:       "I love you lots."
You:      "I love you more."

Because I never want to forget the best moment of my day. I love you, my sweet Eli.
