Since Manny has been working evenings for quite a while, the boys and I have developed a pretty nice pre-bedtime routine. After a supper and baths, they get in their pjs and we hang out (sometimes in Mommy's 'big bed') reading books or playing cars, or trains, or whatever catches their attention. Tonight's reading selection included some favorites: The Big Red Barn, Goodnight Moon, In The Tall, Tall Grass, Pano (the train), One Fish Two Fish, and Are You My Mother?. Audience members tonight included: Little Duck, Meduim Duck, White Duck, Red Angry Bird, and Red Angry Star Wars Bird. They were expecially cuddly and sweet with each other so I grabbed my camera and snapped a few. These quiet moments are kind of rare.
