Each night (well, most nights…when Hannah is not too overly sleepy), as I tuck her in to sleep, we will share a special minute or two just to catch up with each other. Sometimes she will request for a bedtime story and sometimes she will tell me a bedtime story instead. At times, we’ll help each other make up stories…short and funny ones.
Yeah, my Hannah still sleeps with me and is very much attached to me. She says she will move to her own room when we get back to Penang, so hopefully she’ll keep her word.
Our chit chat sessions are special moments I would treasure forever. Even though I need to nurse Emma, Hannah is being very much the helpful big sister by bringing me the nursing pillow and then as I nurse Emma, Hannah will ask, “Can I hug your hand?”
Now how do I say no to that?
We chat about everything at all: how her day was, what day it would be the next day, what we would be doing the next day, how Hannah sleeps like a starfish, we discuss how we’d share the blankie…and then she would yawn, close her eyes and fall asleep. It is the perfect end to every day.
