how romantic...

This is one of my favorite songs playing on the radio right now:
Just how romantic is that, anyway?

I don't get much in the way of romance these days. Does anyone else have this problem? Eric and I have been married for four and a half years now... but that is not the problem. I think... I think... I think that it's all the kiddo's fault!

{Sorry, Seth. Mommy loves you}

Seth has been co-sleeping with us since he was a wee bean. His crib has collected dust: it has rarely been used. He has snuggled between us for the greater part of his life, and I have loved every minute of it. This week, the co-sleeping is (at least in part) coming to an end. Seth has been sleeping in his own bed (crib converted to toddler bed) since Sunday night. We have a full bed in his room, so I have been sleeping in it, while Seth sleeps on his "big boy bed" on the other side of the room. The first night was horrifying. He woke up at 1am and, realizing he was in the same room with his toys, wanted to PLAY until 3 o'clock! Every subsequent night has been better. Wednesday night, he slept all night long. I am slightly saddened by this stage in my son's development. He's stuck between baby and little boy, and I know he needs me less every day. He's more independent, more capable, more creative, more intelligent every day. One day, I will see him off at the bus stop, and then he'll go to prom, and then he'll be getting married....

Sorry. I'm getting ahead of myself.
I hope Eric and I can regain some intimacy that's been lost since our son was born. I hope he knows how much I love him and want to be near him. I hope (one day) we can raise another little bean between us. I think the fact Seth is learning to sleep in his own room may help expedite that cause a little (wink wink). Until then, excuse me while I belt this one out...
Well, I don't want the whole world The sun, the moon, and all their light I just want to be the only girl You love all your life You love all your life.
