Today, I stayed home most of the day with Patrick. I didn't want to expose Manteca to his virus. I must say that he is getting cuter and cuter. He's really bonding with Steven and me, too. He's always loved Maggie, but now he wants us to hold him. He's been sick today and just wants us. Which would normally be kind of an annoying thing that he just wants to be held, but it's a good sign. He is bonding with us and wants us. It makes it easy to bond with him, too. He's so sweet and has cute little blond hair and sticks up in the back when he wakes up!
I got him to sleep tonight and I just laid down with Maggie to put her to sleep.She has been so cute, too. She wants to talk and snuggle a lot lately. Luckily, I have some love to give lately with these two kids!
Maggie wanted me to tell her stories about when I was little tonight. I told her a few stories and then she looked confused. She asked me why my mommy and daddy don't live together anymore. We talked about divorce and she asked a lot of questions. I told her that Daddy and I would never divorce. She put up her hand to the side of her mouth like she was telling me a secret and said "yeah, it's because he's cute!".
After that, I guess I fell asleep. I dreamed that I had just put Patrick to sleep and finally got Maggie to sleep. Then, I had to run an errand. I came back and they were both running around and going crazy. I was confused. Didn't I just put them to sleep? Steven told me that I hadn't, He said that I had dreamed that I had put them to sleep. So, I started the process again and started walking around with Patrick. Somehow I got lost and wound up on a path to someone's house. They turned the sprinklers on me and I was trying to get Patrick out of the sprinklers and back home. Then, I woke up.
How weird is it that I was putting my kids to sleep and had to put them to sleep two times in my dreams?!
