Ashton has a usual routine of asking that Mommy tuck him in to bed, and tonight Aaron told Ashton that he was going to tuck Ashton in to bed! As usual, Ashton, in his dismay, whimpered and whined over and over again, "No, I want my Mommy to tuck me in."
So while I was tucking Ashton in to bed, I asked him, "why do you so badly want mommy to always tuck you in instead of Daddy?" I wanted a serious answer. (Yes, I was trying to boost my self esteem! :) Plus, it would be incentive to keep being the one to always tuck Ashton in to bed each night.) I don't know if his answer was serious or if it was one of his off-the-cuff excuses -- "You just smell different ..... and I don't like the smell .... that Daddy's .... body .... makes."
