Do you have little things you did one day way long ago that have creeped into your daily life and suddenly become part of your permanent structure? Little rituals.

A few years ago, exactly when I'm not certain, our boy was much smaller and wasn't feeling quite well when it was time for bed. I was trying to figure out how to get him comfortable enough to make it through the night. I took his little paw and kissed it, palmside up, then wrapped his fingers around the kiss. Doing the same to the other hand I told him "Now you have two kisses to keep from momma." I Eskimo kissed his nose and he rolled over to sound sleep.... http://midwesternmodernmomma.blogspot.com/2012/10/to-keep.html
