After I got the boys to stop jumping on the bed we read Good Night, Everyone Good Night by Harriet Ziefert and The Story of Ferdinand by Munro Leaf. Jackson picked out both books for our evening reading time. After we finished reading and discussing each book (Ferdinand is a bull in Spain and is picked to go to the bull fights in Madrid--I have actually been to a bull fight in Madrid, so could add lots of information to the background) we set the books aside and tried to go to sleep. As he has done before, sweet six year old Jackson reached for my hand and laced his fingers through mine. What a sweet and precious moment! One I know most likely won't be repeated by him in a few more years.
Today, I am going to slow down a little bit (no big milk production going on today, Michelle) and spend some more time with these little guys. It won't be long until they are just a big as the older boys and won't be wanting to snuggle with their old mom in the bed reading picture books. Today we will make tomorrow's memories.....and I hope they are all good!
My precious little guys!
