Rondel and I were playing outside during Limerick’s nap, with his dinosaur figurines. One of them had put another one down to bed, only to wake him back up a few minutes later.
“Why isn’t he just letting him sleep?” I asked. We never intentionally wake the boys up so I was wondering why his toys were modeling that.
Rondel had his dinosaur grumpily explain that he wanted to play. That gave me a suspicion.
“Do you wish Limerick would wake up to play with you?” I asked. “Do you miss him?”
“I do” Rondel answered sadly.
Even one-on-one playtime with Mommy is lacking without his little sidekick and accomplice, these days – and it makes me so happy to see their friendship deepening.
