A Lullaby by Eli


February 20, 2013 by CassieCravings


At first I thought it was a dream. Slowly, gently a small singing voice lulled me out of a deep sleep.

I glanced at the clock: 3AM. I sleepily gazed at my son. He smiled but didn’t stop his song, “Hush, my little mama. Don’ts you cwry. Eli dunna buys you a mocking bird…”

He twirled my hair in his dimpled fingers and tucked his curly head into the crook of my neck.

“What are you doing, Baby Bear?,” I yawned.

He smiled again as he hummed, “Shhh. Mama, you ‘tan sleep. I gots you.”

Again his song began, soft and sweet. Again I drifted back to sleep slowly, gently, happily.

    These are moments to treasure forever. And the good thing is, in my opinion, you’re setting a solid foundation in your relationship with him. A safe one, a nurtured one. From my experience, that goes a long, long way. 🙂

      Moments like this do give me a glimpse that I’m not messing him up completely. lol I love how close we are. I hope that we can continue to grow even closer as he gets older. ❤
