Sweet Mornings

"Good morning, Siennalee!" I come into the room and rush right over to hug the little person standing in her crib, looking out the window by holding the curtain back gingerly.

I begin turning off the nightlight and noisemaker, listening to her jabber about the trash can outside. "Good morning!" I prompt again.

"Good morning, Mommie!" She smiles back at me.

"Did you have good dreams last night?" I ask her, getting her clothes out of the drawer.

"Yes, I had good dweams."

"What did you dream about?" Now we're changing diaper and getting her dressed. This is a favorite question of mine which, until today, has never been answered directly.

"Ummmm... I dweam about Moo. And I dweam about Sippy. And I dweam about Bee-yar..." These are all her bedmates, along with her blankets.

Such a sweet start to our morning.

"That's a neat dream. She must have taken pictures of the animals with her eyes."
