You know how some kids are easy sleepers at night?
Kaish never was.
Well, I take that back.
He is a great sleeper as long as I lay down beside him.
I know I should have minded when he was a baby.
And a toddler.
And a preschooler.
And right on up to now.
I never did.
I love when he tells me about his day at school and the people he encounters.
I know about every teacher.
The nice ones that really care.
The ones that pretend to be nice when parents are around but are mean to the kids when no one is watching.
I know about the funny ones, the yell-y ones and the happy ones.
I even know about the bus driver who makes him
sit in the front of the bus for 'no reason at all.'
I know that Kaish thinks taking a shower daily is absolutely not necessary.
He thinks homework is a pain and a huge hindrance to his fun at night.
He thinks girls are perplexing.
I am so glad I can lay beside him at night and hear all about these things.
Kaishon is fascinating.
Being his mom is the greatest joy in all the land.
I wouldn't trade it for a zillion dollars.
