My phone conversation with Henry

I had to take an overnight business trip this week. Henry got to spend this time with Nana and Papa. When I called home from the airport shuttle to check on him, here is the conversation:

Me: I am on a bus that will take me to the airport. Then I will get on an airplane to come home to you. When I get home I will check on you.

H: Yeah. I will be fast asleep when you get home. So please tiptoe quietly into my room and give me a kiss. When I wake up in the morning, I will feel that kiss on my face and know that you are home.

How sweet is that? No questions about what goodies I might have acquired for him...just the request for a kiss on the cheek when I get home.

Man, I love that little boy!


  1. that's why i want to be you when i grow up. you're raising such a fabulous boy.

  2. I especially appreciated his request that you tiptoe quietly into his room. That is always my request when I go to bed first.

    It never works.
