Reid wakes up by 6:15 am almost every morning and today was no different. He was at my bedside at 6:00 asking to get in next to me. As usual, my half asleep self allowed him in. He, and adam (a slightly later entry into my bed) stayed there for about 20 minutes before telling me exactly how hungry they were.
After breakfast, and a trip to the farmers market, and lunch, and playing in the backyard all afternoon, we went out to dinner, and to the gelato place that Adam and Reid had been begging us for all day, Reid lost it in the car on the way home.
The boy had been awake for about 14 hours
He finished his night with a glass of chocolate milk and more crying
I brushed his teeth while he sobbed and took him to sit in the rocking chair in the semi-darkness of the living room.
He fell asleep before too long, with one hand down his pants. My little big man
