The Moments that Make it all Worthwhile!

Last night I was making my rounds checking on all the kids right after they went to bed. Yes this is their John Boy way of prolonging bedtime, they tell whichever parent puts them to bed to have the other parent check on them. I was coming out of Charlotte's room and could hear Rehm calling me through his closed door:

Rehm: Mom!

Me: What?

Rehm: Check on me!

Me: Who do you want to check on you?

Rehm: You!

Me: But I just checked on you!

Rehm: Yeah, but I like you, so check on me again.

Of course, it worked and I went right back in and gave him another smooch. It is nice to occasionally be liked by your kids. It is never my goal in parenting but when it happens, even for a few minutes and even as a tactic to stall bedtime it is still nice.
