I think I may have just experienced one of the most special moments with Bridger since he was a little babe. I don't know how to explain it, but it was magical for me. Bridger hadn't taken a nap today (expect for the 7 minutes in the truck on our ride home from town). I really needed him to take a nap so I could work on my talk for church Sunday. He was refusing to take a nap and didn't want to be in his bed. I finally decided that he was just going to have to cry for a little bit while I worked on my talk. He eventually cried himself to sleep. I found a talk online and got it printed just before he started screaming again. I went to check on him and found him very upset, but I'm not sure why. I picked him up and held him while he laid his head on my shoulder and cuddled me. He CUDDLED me!! This may sound insignificant for those of you with cuddly little kiddos, but Bridger isn't the cuddling type, I can rarely get him to even sit on my lap. I sat down in the chair and just let him cuddle me. It lasted for at least 15 minutes. I just sat there thinking, "This is one of Heavenly Father's tender mercies. Through all the screaming, hitting, throwing, and frustration this little boy still loves me, and I love him" It was a miracle. I have been struggling with a TWO year old boy lately, and don't know if I'm making good choices in discipline and everything else that it takes to raise a child. This was my answer, that I'm doing OK and I will make it through. Thank you B for sharing this with me today, I love you so much, you are my little man!!
