Ben and Mylan are snuggling together while Ben falls asleep. I’ve had a long day, oh boy have I, so I couldn’t be more thankful that Mylan is my co-parent and so willingly takes over bedtime duties after I bathe Ben, wrangle PJ’s and tooth brushing and last potty and books (and yes, I hate to say it but there’s still a lot of bedtime work after all that, before our energizer kiddo finally falls asleep). Just a few minutes ago, I overheard the following on the monitor:
Ben: “Papa Mylan Rakich, you a sweaty bear like me?” (Ben was clammy sweaty when I left him with Mylan, so I’d called him that)
Mylan: “Yeah buddy, I’m a sweaty bear too. That’s why you’re a sweaty bear, because you’re my son.”
Too cute :) Love my sweaty bears!
And…Mr Potty Training Ben has learned that saying he needs to go pee again, and again, after lights go out has allowed him to postpone bedtime at his discretion. Game over dude, we’re on to you!
