A few nights ago we had our first evening of thunderstorms for 2010. Reese is still scared of thunder and no matter how many times we say "angels are bowling" etc .... he is still terrified. He will follow me around and not get 5 feet away "just in case it will funder"..... Well, Kevin got back in town last night after being away for a few days and this was the conversation at dinner:
Reese: "Daddy did you have thunder and storms when you were in Columbia?"
Kevin: "Yes a little bit but I wasn't scared. Did you have some here?"
Reese nods in agreement
Kevin: "Were you brave? (again Reese nods in agreement)
Kevin "Did you sleep in your own bed?" after a very very long pause comes a very hesitant nod from Reese.......and he looks at me (because we all know he slept right next to me the whole night)
Kevin: "Are you sure you didn't sleep with Mommy?"
Reese: "Well I did sleep with Mommy but I wasn't scared....I was just saving your spot......."
We all had a good laugh at that one .......gotta love 'em.....
