Bedtime and Splinters

About a week and a half ago I started to do something a little bit different at bed time. When I tuck the kids in bed, instead of just tucking them in, I go into their rooms and sit on their beds. I ask them questions about their day, and we just talk. I have loved learning some interesting things about my kids this way. I hope this new tradition continues for year to come. It gives them an opportunity to open up to me, and I get a chance to learn from and teach them. Sometimes, if I'm really lucky, I may even get to hear a joke, kind of like the one I heard tonight from C.

Mom, what do you get when a splinter jumps in your eye?

I don't know what?

You throw up! And then of course, hysterical laughter.
