my lil' nurturer

This afternoon, I started to feel icky. Mostly a headache, but just kind of gloomy feeling.

I was laying on the couch when Payton heard me tell Matt I wasn't feeling very good and I didn't want to eat dinner. Payton decided to get me my favorite things to make me better. He got my cozy blanket and covered me. He brought me my pillow from my bed. He found my "Secret", an old bear I've had since I was 11 years old. Once I was all covered and snuggled in, Payton brought me a story about stars to read it to me.

He sat next to me reading it to me while I fell asleep. When he was done, he wasn't even upset that I slept through the book. He even got me another one. One about a bear who ate too much. I fell asleep during that one too.

When that book was done, he put the books away and gathered his crayons and coloring book. He found a picture of two giraffes and colored it BEAUTIFULLY for me. He hung it on the wall so that I could see it while I laid on the couch.

I'm so blessed to have a little boy, who at only five years old, knows how important it is to do nice things for people when they aren't feeling good. And all the time really. He's really going to make a great, attentive husband someday.

The power went out at 8:30p.m. last night and just came back on a half hour ago (about 4:30a.m.). I was checking to see if anything was damaged and found your post.

I have had the yuks for several days now. I wish I had Payton here to care for me. You are truly blessed. His behavior is a result of both his personality and his training. Love you both. Dad

P.S. fortunately we were unable to watch the Browns game.
