One of Wyatt's favorite new things is to have us cuddle with him before bed. Truthfully, Jeff started it and I think it was born of Jeff's crazy schedule making it so that many nights he wasn't really home before bedtime. Anyway, tonight I put the young man to bed and he requested a cuddle. So we did. We lay there chatting and I asked him if he thought he would have kids when he grows up. He said he would, so I asked how many. And he held up three fingers.
"Three?" I asked.
"Yes," he replied.
"Well do you think we should have three kids?"
"Yes, I do," he said.
"Really? You want another baby in this house?"
"No, Mommy," as if that was the craziest thing I could've said. "Just Isaac!"
I'm telling you, my heart is already aching for my little boy who has no idea that his best friend won't always live within walking distance. I guess for Wyatt, friends really are the family you'd choose for yourself.
