occasionally dan travels for work. his can be traveling many weeks at a time or few and far between. right now we are in a few and far between lull.
when he does travel, there are two little rascals that like to sleep with me. in trying to keep it fair, we trade off nights. i fear having both in bed will lead to very little sleep for me.
the other night both ben and emilia managed their way into my bed. it was ben's night but emilia played the 'sad card.' i felt so bad for her (she's good!). she cried that she was scared, lonely and couldn't sleep in her room without ben (did i ever mention they share a room?). i could turn her sad little face down.
my plan was to move one of them when i came up later but i didn't. i couldn't. when i walked in just before midnight their little heads were turned into each other (not pictured) in the most heart fluttering way. i scooted emilia to the middle and prayed we'd all get a good night sleep. and we did.
i love that they love sleeping in our bed. and while we miss dan while he is away for work, i know both of them are looking forward to the next time he is out of town so they can sleep in our bed. it's the little things that make them happy.
