Rocket Racer and Superman

One of my favorite times of the day is when my little boys settle down to get ready for bed.  And it's not because I finally get time with my husband.  It's my favorite time of the day because it's the one thing I have control over during the day.  They have a strict bedtime and they have a routine.  It's what works for them and what works for us.  We eat supper, they play with Daddy (and me if I'm not working), I give them their baths, we play, we read LOTS of books, take vitamins, brush teeth, say prayers, and then put them to bed.  It's so special to me.  I love hearing what and who Cash is going to pray about.  Nana and Mia are always in the prayer somewhere.  But then there's things thrown in like, "Thank you God for spaghetti tonight, it was really good."  or  "Dear God, please help me find my Optimus Prime tomorrow."  And it's just the sweetest, most innocent little thing in the world.
 

My favorite prayer yet is one Cash said a few months back:  "Dear God, thank you for Mommy and Chrissy and Daddy. They are my best fwenz and I'm glad that you picked me to be their widdle boy.  And pwease don't let Chrissy be bigger than me because I wuv to hode him and if he's bigger than me then I won't be able too anymore."
If only Cash knew how many times I have prayed the same thing about HIM.

Here is my favorite song that is MY song for my little boys.  They don't have their "own" song.  They share a song.  And it's our "special" song.  Cash knows that it's his song from me.  And soon Christopher will too.

"Godspeed (Sweet Dreams)

"Dragon tales and the "water is wide"
Pirate's sail and lost boys fly
Fish bite moonbeams every night
And I love you

Godspeed, little man
Sweet dreams, little man
Oh my love will fly to you each night on angels wings
Godspeed
Sweet dreams

The rocket racer's all tuckered out --> (Christopher)
Superman's in pajamas on the couch --> (Cash)
Goodnight moon, will find the mouse --> Our favorite night-night story
And I love you

Godspeed, little man
Sweet dreams, little man
Oh my love will fly to you each night on angels wings
Godspeed
Sweet dreams

God bless mommy and match box cars
God bless dad and thanks for the stars
God hears "Amen," wherever we are
And I love you

Godspeed, little man
Sweet dreams, little man
Oh my love will fly to you each night on angels wings
Godspeed
Godspeed
Godspeed
Sweet dreams
