Night visitor

Last night it finally happened. The thing I have been dreading the most since becoming a parent. Yep, one of my children figured out how to crawl into bed with us. While we have put the kids in bed with us before when they are sick or scared, those times were always on our own terms. But last night, without invitation, Elizabeth walked herself down the dark hallway, past the whirly twirly lights, through the Lincoln Tunnel, and into our bedroom (bonus points if you can name the movie I am referencing there). She said that she had a "tummy ache". Likely story Elizabeth. And with Elizabeth taking up my whole side of the bed there was only one thing left for me to do. I walked myself through the Lincoln Tunnel, past the whirly twirly lights, and down the dark hallway to the empty bed in Elizabeth's room. A note to future parents- be sure to buy your kids comfy beds because chances are, you'll be sleeping in them too!

  1. I'm amazed it took this long for one of the kids to crawl in bed with you. I'm also amazed I'm the first to claim bonus points - the movie is Elf!
