The Little Man has a routine before bed. After he’s gotten into his pajamas and brushed his teeth and is all cleaned up, we find Kelly and the Little Miss. I remind to him say goodnight.
“Goodnight, Mommy,” he says.
“Goodnight, Little Miss,” he says.
Then I usually have to nudge him before he says, “I love you!” (Which comes out sounding like “Ah lahv yoo!”)
Last night the Little Man had been playing with a new toy on our bed–a little train set from Chugginton. (His reward for doing a very good job using the potty.) I collected him for bed and got him all ready. I think reminded him to say goodnight.
“Goodnight, Mommy,” he said.
“Goodnight, Little Miss,” he said.
Then he paused and I nudged him as a reminder. “What else, buddy?”
And without missing a beat, the Little Man said, “Goodnight, train tracks!”
