My little buddy burner

Since Ollie was 6 weeks old he has slept through the night. I believe the fact he is an excellent sleeper was God's gift to me because he is such an active toddler. I can probably count on my hand the times he's been up in the middle of the night. However the past few weeks he has been sneaking into my room and climbing in bed with me around 3am.

I know I should be breaking him of this. However I'm allowing it to continue for a couple of reasons.

1. I am half asleep when he comes in.

2. He lays next to me and scratches my back just like I do to him when I put him to sleep.

It's very endearing.

Besides how can I say no to this?

And yes, Chicky comes too.

That's a bad choice mom...

Sometimes the fact that I'm a teacher clearly shows. I'm not sure if that's a good or a bad thing! The other day Ollie was playing before we had to leave for work and school. I asked Ollie to clean up so we could leave. His response? 'That's a bad choice mom....'. He used the expression again a couple more times this week. The funny thing is...I can't even remember ever saying that to him!
