i nanny part time and most days it is the usual: running after little bottoms, chopping food into bite size pieces and playing tickle monster. but sometimes i work nights and the bedtime routine has to be my all time favourite. there are bubble baths and lots of story telling and sometimes snuggles with little S who loves a little tlc before bed.
so this evening after i finished telling a quick story, S looked at me with sleepy brown eyes and asked if i would snuggle. he curled up next to me, wrapped his little arms around my wooly sleeve and this was our conversation.
s: ally...how was your day?
a: it was good S i had a big test at school. how was your day?
s: it was good, i went to nana's for lunch.
a: what did you have?
a: oh really
s: and we didn't even have cookies.What did you have?
a: i actually had a popsicle this morning. do you know what that is?
s: yea its like icy candy on a stick, it makes your tongue really cold and it's all messy and you probably needed a plate.
