what i learned while writing a novel



It’s been a while since my last Best Thing About Being a Mom post.  This week I have a new one:

Footie pajamas.

I love footie pajamas.  I love buying them, washing them, folding them, packing them for trips, unpacking them at destinations, and most of all, I love dressing my little boy in them.

All at once, he looks like such a big boy and such a little baby.  He is so cuddly and snuggly and scoop-up-and-hugable.

I love that I get to hug this little boy before he goes to sleep at night and that I get to hug him when he wakes up in the morning.

I love that every day starts with his giggle, and ends with his face imprinted on my eyelids as I go to sleep.

I love that John and I spend as much time as we can playing with him in the evenings and on the weekends, and that we miss him when he goes to sleep.

I love this little boy, and I love being his mom!

    As preschoolers living in a split level my parents would let us slide down the short set of stairs from the main level to the lower level in our footie pajamas. Since they encased us completely it was like riding on a wearable rug. We loved it. I loved my footie pajamas so much that when I was 4 I insisted that my dad get my mom some for mother’s day because I thought she was missing out!

    Your son looks adorable in them.

    The beginning and end of every day are such sweet times, aren’t they? No matter what the day has been like, bedtime always redeems it
