I get holding onto those small bedtime rituals. I still tuck in Anna and give her a goodnight hug and kiss every night, at 15yo. If it’s a weekend and I’m going to bed before her, she tucks me in. It’s only been in the last 3 months, since we remodeled her bedroom and she now has a comfy queen bed, that she doesn’t ask to sleep in my bed anymore at least one night a week. We’ll see how it changes over the next few years before the end of high school, but I plan to hold onto it as long as I can.

I love that you still do this every night and that Elias continues to expect/allow it. A beautiful way to close even the hardest of days.

Candice, I love that she tucks you in too! And cheers to holding onto these moments of connection.

Thank you Kate, after one particularly hard day with one of his meltdowns he just leaned his head into mine as I tucked him in and we sat like that for a minute or so. It helped.
