So, pretty much every night after the kids are "supposed to be in bed" we have one of those shouting-down-the-hallway-in-the-dark conversations with Ru. I hate them. So annoying...such a stalling technique. Why do they not just go to sleep? Take for instance, this little snippet of dialogue from last night.
"Will you make me breakfast?"
"Yes, in the morning. Go to sleep!"
"I love you Mommy!"
"I love you too, sleep now."
"Daddy? Will you keep me safe?"
"Yes, Ru...I will. Goodnight!"
(maybe he's asleep!)
(crap) "Yes Ru?" *sigh*
"Do you know how much I love you Mommy?"
*me pausing, smiling in the dark*
"How much Ru?"
"Mommy, I love you just like a bee loves a flower!"
"I'm so glad Ru! I'll see you in the morning."
*melt melt melt melt melt melt*
