The tie dye cake cones are cooling on the rack.
The red velvet cake cones are nearly ready to come out of the oven.
You’ve just come down for one more kiss, one last joke, one more hug, a few minutes more…
I hug you, I laugh, I kiss you, and I nudge you upstairs…. because, go to bed. There are still presents to be wrapped, streamers to be hung, confetti to be spread….
and then I realize… once you go to sleep
10 will only be a memory.
Come back for one more kiss, one more story, one more hug.
I can’t wait to say good morning to 11, but I’m not quite ready to say Goodnight to 10.
