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??
