She had trouble falling asleep tonight.
It didn’t help that Federer was playing in the Quarterfinals of the U.S. Open. While my daughter is more important, I think she can handle a little less snuggles for something that only comes once a year. In any case, I still spent time looking through a magazine of costumes, tickling her and saying affirmations. I just didn’t do a longer snuggle- more like long hugs and then checking the score. Finally…
Me – “Okay, that’s enough. I’ve snuggled you four times now.”
Her – “But that’s not long. Daddy, I need your “lovins” to fall asleep.”
Just thought it was a cute comment. One to remember.
Fair enough. I could hardly resist that. So, I gave her a fifth quick snuggle.
Happy to report that she fell asleep happily and that Roger won. Order in the Universe tonight, at least on those two counts.
