sweet esme' rose


i was awoken by the hall light shining on my face as she slowly pushed open our bedroom door. the clock said 4:30. and then she was standing next to me. "i had a bad dream, i am scared." i pulled the covers back inviting her in. she climbed into the bed and snuggled next to me. nearly five minutes went by and i was just drifting back into sleep when she whispered "i put socks on so my toenails wouldn't tickle you, mama."
no, my heart was tickled with love instead!

Oh that is too sweet. My darling 3 year old boy doesn't say that, he just jumps in and snuggles right up to us. I love those warm bodies on a cold night :)
