Just what I needed!

Yesterday in the late afternoon I took the kids upstairs to play in Luke's room. For some reason the kids love playing in Luke's room. They color on Luke's easel and read lots of books from the bookshelf. Ella loves getting into the closet and playing with shoes and will always make her way into Mom and Dads room to get into their toothbrushes.
So as the kids played I decided to lay on the floor and rest. After a few minutes Luke brought me over his "B" and carefully lay it on my back while saying "Here Mama, this will be nice and cozy" then he proceeded to get me his other "B" and followed up with his pillow. Each time saying things like, "This is better" "You are going to take a nice nap" and "Are you cozy and warm, Mama?" Then he turned off the light and closed the bathroom door, so it would be darker. As he closed the door he said,"Have good dreams Mama, you're a good girl" Every few minutes he would walk in and check on me, give me a kiss or tell me he loved me. At one point he said that my legs were cold so he pulled the big Fire Truck comforter off of his bed...pulled with all of his might, and carefully draped it over my body.
The next thing I knew Luke came in and asked me if I had a good sleep and as I looked at the clock I realized 45 minutes had gone by. I felt re-juvinated and ready to go on with the rest of the day.
So thanks to my sweet Lukie for helping me to get in a nice nap... just what I needed. And thanks to GG who I am sure was wondering where my kids Mom was for 45 minutes as she made them a snack and did a bit of entertaining. We love GG for so many reasons, that will be a post all its own.

Oh What a cutie bug! I wish my kids would "encourage" me to take a nap...because somedays I would just be better off...not a chance! Luke is such a sweet boy.
