Each night, I try to make sure the kids are in a good mood when they go to sleep. I ensure they are in a good mood by doing three things: 1) I tell them a story. 2) I speak in a calm and soft voice. 3) I put a little reefer in their humidifier.
While I was tucking Andrew into bed, I had a little small talk with him.
"Did you have fun at school today?" I asked.
"Yah," responded Andrew.
"What did you do at school?" I continued.
"I play on teeter totter wif Emma," said Andrew.
"You know what?" I questioned.
"Wha?" answered Andrew.
"I just wanted you to know that you are doing such a good job at school. You're becoming such a big boy, and I'm very proud of you," I said as I leaned in to give Andrew a kiss on his cheek.
And as I pulled away from my little boy, he stared at me and said, "You have a booger in your nose."
