Y4 - 216/365: Another Bedtime Companion?
Ryan has had a Megabloks Thomas train for some time now and absolutely loves it. So, when we made our weekly shopping trip to Tesco and rode the trolley escalator up (as Ryan requests) we decided to give Megabloks Thomas a couple of companions -- a Percy and a James. I wasn't surprised tonight when Ryan requested that James come to bed with him because as soon as he was out of the package he wouldn't put him down.
He had his milk in my arms and clenched his teddy and James tightly. Then, when I lowered him onto his pillow, he sweetly asked me to "take James downstairs," before I kissed him goodnight.
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
