When I grow up to be a man

The other night I was laying in bed with Little Man for his "five at five". We have decided, thanks to his buddy Ben's mom's rule that I have adopted, now that he is five years old he gets me for five minutes at bedtime after the routine (as opposed to indefinitely). So I tucked him in, turned off the lights and laid there with him and chatted a bit. Still a bit hyper, he chirps:
"I five, then six, then seven, then eight then nine then ten, then I a GROWN-UP!!" Then adds "I like you very much, that's why I no marry a wife, I live with you!!" (Think he will change his mind about that one?!) Still pondering, he says
"Then, I ask you to go play with my friends Savanna and baby Drew and you'll say, "But you are grown-ups!" and he belly laughed at his thought for about a minute.
Wonder if we'll be doing thirty minutes when he is thirty years old, hahahaha!

I am sure his wife will love having you chat with him for 30 minutes in the bed every night. Oh yes that will go over just fine. Lol.

Awww, I love this post.

I hope that no matter what age your little man is, he will always have some time for "mama" each day!!

That is cute. Hopefully he will give you 30 minutes when he is 30!
