My 2.5 yr old son has always been a great sleeper. Every once in a while, he’ll wake up in the middle of the night, but after a few minutes of reassurance and cuddles, he’s back asleep in no time.
Last night was one of those wake up nights. 3:24 AM I heard the sweet voice say “Mommy! There’s a bug on my toe!” Once I come to I asked “did you get it?” to which he replied “YES!” and proceeds to stand there and stare at me waiting for me to invite him into our bed. My husband then took him upstairs to his room where he was soon asleep again.
While hard to do in the moment, I am learning to love the promptness nature of his little thoughts.
