Each night I after a bath, brushing teeth, and reading some books we sing. First it's the night-night song- one my friend Jen made up and we adopted, and then daddy and whoever else is at our house leaves the room and I sing to Anderson.
I wrap the blue blanket around him that my neighbor from Chagrin made for him and he leans his head on my chest. First we start with Jesus loves me. Then, I sing You are my Sunshine.
He sits up and starts swaying. Then here's how it goes. The sweetest just can't be made up.
Me: you are my
M: my only
M: you make me
M: when skies are
Me: you'll never know dear. How much
Together: I love you
M: please don't take. My sunshine
He puts his head back on my chest, I sing the second verse then rock some more and tell him I'm going to put him in his crib with baby and doggie. I started rubbing his back the past few nights so now he says "back back!" I've created a monster, but the sweetest one I know.
