So, this has been a crazy busy week for me–more in the “personal” realm than work (although I’m equally busy there)–so I just wanted to post something cute and quick about my boy. Because everyone LOVES hearing stories about other people’s kids, right? Right!
Well, O has a penchant for talking in his sleep. It’s quite adorable. Last night he started mumbling something, sort of stirred, let out a little cry and called out for… wait for it… not “Mommy” or “Daddy” but “Daycare Caregiver’s/Teacher’s Name.” OUCH!
As he settled himself down to sleep, I got a little depressed and obsessed about what that could possibly mean: Has Caregiver all of a sudden surpassed me in comforting techniques?
Then I heard him mumbling something else in his sleep. This time he was sleep-talking “O-bo (which is a nickname we often call him) Running, O-bo Running,” (O-bo Running is a game he and I play–sort of a toddlerized combo version of tag/hide-n-seek.). And then I had a little giggle.
What else can you do? I might not be the only one he runs to for comfort, but at least I can create odd games he likes so much that he wants to play them in his sleep.
