Sweetpea is a snotty sick little angel... so she went to be extra early with her new best friend, the humidifier and was glad for it. Longlegs earned a special treat and got to stay up late with Mommy. We made popcorn and watched nearly all of "The Wizard of Oz". Quite a feat for a 2.5 year old. His favorite scenes were when the Cowardly Lion cried (he kept asking me if I could make the Lion better) and any scene that included The Wicked Witch. He loves villains.
Best part of the day. Snuggling on the fold out sofa-bed with my little man. Feeling him cuddle his body up against my side and under my armpit. Watching his little hands meticulously pick out which piece of popcorn he was going to eat next. Answering his questions about what happens now in the movie. Indulging him when his wet fingers tried to feed me a piece of popcorn. Feeling him snuggle into me harder when the Witch did something scary.
I felt the best I had all day. I felt like I was on a date. I can't wait until Sweetpea has the necessary attention span to join us and make it a family date night. These moments fuel me.
