Apparently I’m going back to my childhood because I’ve been sleeping with a stuffed animal all week.
I should explain that it is a little stuffed dog that Lucas has given me each night to cuddle with. Lucas has been wanting to share the love because he also gave one to Ben, who doesn’t sleep with stuffed animals like Lucas and Grace do, and he also gave one to Gary. So the two of us have been joined in bed each night by Cocoa and Spot.
Rather than putting the doggies aside, we put them in our bed to show Lucas in case he got up in the night or woke up earlier than we did in the morning. I wouldn’t want him to think we didn’t appreciate his gift.
But the funny thing about it is we’ve really slept great all week! I think Lucas is on to something.
