Our little guy has been waking up at nights in recent days, due to teething (and who knows what else–toddlers are like the weather in terms of changeability). This morning when my wife and I got up to start our day, he woke up as well. He was having trouble falling back to sleep, so it fell on me to take him back to bed and cuddle him for a few minutes. These are the burdens I bear. He had finally drifted off when one of our cats started loudly meowing. Little guy sat straight up, shouted, “Kitty cat!”, and then promptly fell back asleep.
I wish now this story had a point other than “our son is such a cute kid.” But it doesn’t (and he is).
