The best night ever...

Wow...I just experienced one of the most relaxing evenings of my life. After feeding my son and getting him ready for bed. We went into his room to perform the nightly ritual that both he and I hate, It was bed time. Usually it consists of either me or daddy laying him down in his crib and walking out slowly while not making eye contact, turning the light off and creeping out of the door. I am trying my best to make it all seem much less repulsive and much quieter than it really is...In reality it is usually a bunch of screaming and yelling all the time while we are creeping out and for about 10-15 minutes later. I hate it.

Tonight however, I laid him down in the crib...immediately he started crying, I put the front railing down, and sat on the floor by his crib. I told him that mommy wouldnt leave him and I started rubbing his back while he laid in his crib. I started telling him the story of Goldilocks and the three bears, adding a very nice ending to it by the way because I don;t know how that daggone story ends...By the time I was done with the story he was fast asleep. It felt wonderful. I hadn't felt that good since i used to hold him in my arms and nurse him to sleep...It is truly a feeling no one but a monther could understand...Now I feel wonderful. And I hope you all have a wonderful night also...TTYL
