I guess LOVE really is in the details.

Tonight's Goodnight:

Kort took a shower tonight.
He loves showers.

He showered until the water ran cold,
sending black streams of
Ninja Mohawk
swirling down the drain
as he sang.

(and sang, and sang.)

He was a Kortsicle
by the time we got him
dressed and into bed.

I wrapped him up in
TWO down-feather comforters
and held his clammy-cold cheek against mine.
(for like, a really long time.)

Then we watched some smurfs.

Then, I gave him one last kiss
and climbed down from the loft bed.

"Goodnight Bud!"
I said, as I opened his bedroom door to leave.

To which he replied:
"Love you too."

Aww, so sweet. It's so great to appreciate the small things in life! You really are such a good writer. The way you word things just makes me able to picture it all. If that even made sense!...obviously I'm NOT a writer!...haha

You watched smurfs? Is that still on?

We have Smurfs on DVD (ALL of the seasons.) Yeah, I know you're jealous. Don't hate.
