Kayce went to his first Bulls game last night with Daddy while Conor and I hung out at home. We had a very fun night until bedtime. For those of you who don’t know, Conor and Kayce share a bedroom, and I have to say I think this may be the first time that they haven’t gone to bed together since Conor started sleeping in his toddler bed about 6 months ago. We went through the whole bedtime process of putting pj’s on, then brushing teeth, then reading a book. And as I am trying to get him to lay down and tuck him in, he just starts crying. He gets out of bed and was crying, “Kayce”. He walked over to Kayce’s bed and wanted to sleep with Kayce’s nanie (blankie) and pillow. The only way I could get him to stop crying was to tell him that Kayce would give him a big kiss when he got home and he said a sad “OK” and stopped crying.
Kayce and Justin didn’t get home too much later and Conor was still awake, which is a little unusual because he usually falls asleep pretty quick. Kayce got Conor a Benny the Bull stuffed animal from the game and brought it to him right when they got home. Then when he went to bed a few minutes later you could hear them giggling and talking for a while before falling asleep.
I absolutely love how close they are becoming. They are best buddies, and I know they have a best friend in each other for life, and that is so precious to sit back and watch!
