I need you

I woke up around 2:30 am this morning to hear Aidric sobbing and yelling "mommy". I went in to see what was wrong and he immediately stood up, handed me his blanket and reached out his arms for me. I scooped him up and then laid down on the bed with him. (The guest bed is in his room).

Here was our conversation:

me: Aidric, tell mommy what happened.

aidric: I cry for mommy.

me: Yes, but why did you cry for mommy?

aidric: I want mommy come to my room.

me: I know honey, but WHY??

aidric: I need you.

And that was all it took to settle in a little deeper and cuddle for a good 10 minutes. I mean, he needed me. What else did I need to know??

Oh, how sweet. It just takes a comment like that to make being awake at 2:30 AM not so bad after all. =)
