Encouraging Heroes. You can be one too.

‘Round about 4 am local time, I heard the patter of little feet heading my way.  The conversation went like this:

Captain Earthquake: Mama, can I sweep wif you?

Me: No, honey, you have to sleep in your own bed.  I can’t sleep when you’re in my bed.

(We have so gone down this road before.  He’s only slept through the night for the past several months.)

Captain Earthquake: Okay.

Captain Earthquake: Mama, can I cover you up?

Me: No thank you sweetie.  I’m already covered.  You go back to bed now.  I love you.

Captain Earthquake: Okay.  I love you too. pads off toward bed and doesn’t return
