Wanna go to bed? Okay.

I was scrapbooking and wanted to finish the page when Reuben went to bed. He's been acting scared of his room. He stays laying down, but screams and cries. I think the mouse was in there one night and he's scared of it coming back.

So I worked with my back to him. He stood in his bed and quietly watched me for a while, then I heard him start talking in his sweet little voice. the one that he uses when he says "baby girl, baby boy, oh sweet baby." I heard him say,

"Wanna go to bed? Okay. Lay down, please. Okay."

I turned to see what he was doing, I saw him squatting over his bear tucking the blanket under its arms.

He put his water bottle to the bear's mouth,"Want some milk? No milk? Okay." He took it away and put it back in his own mouth.

He patted the bears head. And sat down next to it.

Then Justin came in to put something away and the magic stopped.

I was so glad I got to hear and see that. It was so sweet. Now if only Reuben was as quiet as the bear, an as willing to fall asleep when he was laid down.
