Rough Wed night

From time to time wifey has to go out at night and big daddy (me, ha ha) gets to put the beans to bed. I no longer have beans and daddy day Wed, so the transition for me has been a little rough. No secret that I am fourth on the list, mommy, nana, pop pop then me. I am ok with this most of the time as I know the rationality that I am around the least. Nana and pop pop are with her all day, and let's face it mommy is and always be mommy and no one can compete with that, I have an hour or so in the am, and an hour or so at night. Tonight was my night to put the beans to bed. Read the books, sing the songs, all me. It started very rough as the beans pretty much lost it when mommy left, it took a bit to settle her down and get into some books. We read and sang, sad our prayers and I put her in her crib.
Then it got really hard to walk out of the room. Usually a drop and run works really well, she cries for a minute and right to sleep. Tonight she said, ' daddy ' yes beans. ' Daddy' I am still here beans, do you want your blanket. ' Yeah' ok beans. ' Daddy ' yeah beans. ' Baby ' you have the baby with you already. ' Yeah ' ' daddy ', beanie ' daddy ' I am still here, do you want me to stay till you fall asleep ' yeah ' ok beans I will stay. ' Daddy ' I love you beans. ' Yeah '. That is enough to melt your heart. I stayed in her room and rubbed her hand, played with her hair. Her eyes half open half closed and every now and then saying ' daddy ' to make sure I haven't left. Sleep tight beans!

That is probably one of the cutest things I've ever read! I know my brother-in-law feels the same way as you about the hour in the morning and hour in the evening he gets to spend with my niece. Every moment counts, that's for sure!

my goodness. I seriously just got so misty-eyed. This was adorable. Definitely made me look foward to the day when I have little baby beans. :-) You've probably mentioned this before... but since I'm a fairly new reader of your bloggy... how old is Beans? and where did the name Beans come from?

That was adorable and unthawed my frozen heart a little.
