Since he's been under the weather, he seems to prefer a little more cuddles. I'm ok with that.
He isn't keen on being flat, due to all the drainage I'm guessing.
I'm ok with that. I can hold him.
My job is to take care of him and I intend to do just that!
When he's awake, there's only so much talking we can do.
So, I tried something else.
I turned on my ipod and we danced.
That's when I had another unexpected emotional moment.
I started thinking about our future together.
Not that I've never done that before..but, this time it seemed more tangible.
I thought about us dancing in our living room- in the same spot-when he's 7 and then 17 (that is, if he'll have me).
I thought about the girl he will love someday and the girl that will break his heart. Will I be tough enough to help him through it? Right now, I'm not sure i won't be a big ole puddle.
So we two-stepped to George Strait, the Avett brothers, Heart (guilty pleasure), Wilco and Fleetwood Mac. Then he smiled in his sleep and I like to think it was intentional.
Perhaps he felt this was a special moment for us, too.
Or perhaps he had gas.
Here's to hoping and praying he'll wake up well tomorrow!
