I love it that it takes my kids like twenty minutes to say goodnight before they slowly drift off to bed.
Each of them has a question or a story or a drawing to reveal. And of course, Stefan hugs us at least 3 times each. He hugs, then we engage with another child until he comes in for another round of hugs. It is a process that produces large quantities of happy.
The skeptics will say they just don’t want to go to bed. But I think, (even though we have never spoken about it) they dig it as much as we do.
I won’t lie. There are nights when I finally have to tell them to beat it, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. It is one of those things; you don’t want to touch it because you’re afraid you will ruin it.
