mom-mode post #181 – on toddler beds and bedtime songs
May 2, 2012 § 2 Comments
A couple of weeks ago we turned Oliver’s crib into a toddler bed. It was a sort of spur of the moment thing. One day the husband came home and next thing we know, there it was, his little tiny cot, ready for our big boy to drift off to dreamland.
And drift off he did. He only fell out once and went straight back to sleep. He calls out for us in the morning still, he hasn’t quite figured out that he can get out of bed himself. Something we know may change but that we’re thankful for now.
We changed our bedtime routine to his bed. He cozies himself up with his pillow, we read a few books, he asks for a few more. We sing a few songs, and this is my favorite part, he sings along. I want to engrave that sweet sound of his voice, trying to follow along to This little light of mine . This mama’s heart couldn’t get any more full of joy and gratitude for being given such a precious gift.
