I have to tell you, Delaney (my nearly 4 year old) has been especially sassy lately. For some reason, she is in a HUGE testing phase.
Normally, the stress of the testing disappears while she is sleeping…leaving a sweet angel instead of a sassy, strong-headed little thing. But I have to laugh, because tonight, she proved she wants me back off while she is sleeping too.
A nighttime ritual of mine is to check on my kids shortly before heading to bed, kiss their sweet cheeks and whisper, “Mommy loves you”. Tonight, as I kissed and whispered, Delaney shoved me away!
Even in sleep she is wanting a little space. I can’t blame her, but I do love watching her and envisioning a peaceful start, middle and end for tomorrow.
Sweet Dreams, Angel Girl.
