Vacation Monday

With company here, Salvatore gets to sleep with mommy and daddy!  We love it!  After brushing his teeth, I brought him into bed with me in the back bedroom by the backyard.  He is not used to sleeping in this room, so I was initially concerned.  No need...we crawled into bed and I read to him from Aesop's Fables.  He listened until his eyes fell heavy and he rubbed my arm as he drifted off.  We all slept soundly until 9:30 a.m. this morning!  Salvatore woke up happy as usual and I made a quick breakfast in bed.  We sat up eating and watching some Dora Christmas special.  He was answering every question Dora asked in Spanish and English!  We are still snuggling and I love that I don't have to get up or go anywhere or check my phone or anything!  Ahhhh.....vacation!

Here was his favorite Aesop's Fables story from last night:

Father and Sons

A man had several sons who were always quarreling with one another, 
and, try as he might, he could not get them to live together in harmony.
So he determined to convince them of their folly by the following means.
Bidding them fetch a bundle of sticks, he invited each one in turn to break 
the bundle across his knee.
All tried and all failed: and then he undid the bundle, and handed them the sticks one by one, which they had no difficulty at all in breaking.
"There, my boys," said he, "united you will be more than a match for your enemies: but if you quarrel and separate, your weakness will put you at the mercy of those who attack you."


  1. you better check your are like my life line!

  2. Salvatore is a very flexible little guy:) I am sure you are cherishing these moments with him. I hope he keeps sleeping in for you during the vacation!
