Lucas snuck out of his room at the beginning of his nap a few minutes ago. We didn't hear a thing, but when we went to check in on him, he wasn't there. Instead … we found him in our room, sitting propped up against a pillow in our bed, the covers pulled up over his lap, with Eckhart Tolle's A New Earth opened on his lap.
When I asked him what he was doing, he said, "I'm just reading a book before I go to bed."
Here's to all of the quirky ways in which our children make us so grateful to be their mothers.
Happy Mother's Day everyone!
