my favorite summer nights lately,
are when sean and i get the little boys bathed and in bed.
i sing to chase.
he likes baby beluga the best.
and he always falls asleep with the light on before i even walk out of the room.
i walk by sean sitting with maxine on her bed.
sometimes she's being sweet.
other times she's freaking out and i can tell sean has had it.
those are the times when we locked wide eyes
and i give him the "stay strong brotha! you've got this" look.
and then i walk down the stairs into the big room,
and brennan has a book on the recliner,
with one of the big cozy blankets.
you know the ones costco has every year?
and they go on sale like right when it's starting to snow outside.
i've bought one every year for the last 5 years.
we have lots of colors.
the grey one is the newest, so that's the one the kid fight over the most.
i've got my eye on purple next year folks.
it doesn't match a thing in my house, but i just love how bright it is.
brennan reads to himself, while i go through email and messages,
and then he curls up and falls asleep.
and it's the little routine that i love.
this older kid routine.
where they can hang out with you bc they're older.
and they're not so little.
and i love it.
only two dimples left on his hands guys.
we're on borrowed time.
