...'cause I just don't want to forget...
When we first moved the girls into their big kid beds, I was so afraid they'd get up and wander around the house at night. I impressed upon them that they DID NOT GET UP until their clock turned green in the morning. "If you need something, call Mommy."
The girls are far old enough to go to the bathroom by themselves...but during the night, on the rare occasion that someone needs the potty, I get a summons. It rarely happens, so I don't really mind.
Tonight, the girls had been in bed less than 30 minutes when I heard my A call for me. I ran upstairs and found her sister already snoring. "Mommy, I need to go potty," A whispered when I approached her.
I walked with her into the bathroom, and she did her thing. I haven't done this in a long time, but I picked her up when she finished. Instead of her walking back to her bed, I carried her.
"Thank you, Mommy," she told me as she hugged my neck.
What precious baby girls I have.
