Just Rub My Tummy

My four-year-old grandson, Zac, along with his brother, Kaden, and sister, Taylor, spent three nights with me last week. And every night, when it was time to go to sleep, Zac wanted to sleep with me. What "sleeping" with Zac entails is Grandma rubbing his tummy so he can fall asleep.

After the third night of being – first with 3 kids, then with 8 kids, then with 6 kids – 3 days in a row, I was exhausted, so on the third night of his stay, I told him, "Zac, Grandma is too tired to rub your tummy until you fall asleep.

Being the sweet gentleman he is, he offered me an option – "That's OK, you can just put you hand on my tummy."

He sure has grown. When he was two years old, he had to have his whole body resting on mine before he could fall asleep. I talk about that time in The Symbol of a Grandma's LoveYou'll see the symbol in this blog as well, though to get an explanation, you'll have to read the other blog.
