A conversation from last night:
Me: Maybe we’ll go to the play lodge tomorrow.
L (my 3-year-old): What day will it be?
L: Saturday?! I LOVE Saturday!
Me: I love Saturday too!
I’m fairly certain that he loves Saturday because he was trying to delay bedtime even later. I remember those moments when I was a kid. Coming down the hallway to ask questions. I always saved my questions and important things that needed to be said for late at night – past bedtime. That time when my mom was probably trying to watch her tv shows and relax after a long day at work and taking care of two kids.
My boy is becoming the master manipulator at bedtime. He knows he can get daddy to let him stay up later if books are involved. (Daddy can’t say no to a good book.) He knows I’ll rock him and cuddle with him. He can keep talking to me while we’re rocking, and I’ll eventually forget that Grey’s Anatomy starts in 5 minutes or that I have dishes to do, lunches to prepare and a shower to take before going to bed only to do it all over again the next day.
Saturdays are a favorite of mine. I’m glad that my boy recognizes how fun Saturdays can be.
