This week it finally happened. There are certain words you always wait for your children to say. For years you keep your ears perked, hoping that the parental dream might be fulfilled. And on Monday night it was for me. Sam came over by me and uttered those unforgettable words: “I want to go to bed.”
Okay, so he didn’t actually go to sleep for another hour or two (although he did lie in bed for a while), but for any child to even mention a desire to get into bed is a huge victory.
