Kids sleep with light on. Why?
When they’re very young they’re not even afraid of the dark yet. And it’s not like the young ones are getting up to go to the bathroom at night or anything. Why do they sleep with the light on?
The real reason kids sleep with some light on is so that you can see them well when you watch them seep.
So you can clearly see them and wonder where the heck they came from?
So you can clearly see their features and wonder, who exactly do they look like?
So you can clearly see how tall they’ve gotten and wonder where time went?
So you can stand there staring at them wondering how you ever kept busy before having children and wonder what the heck you’ll do to keep busy once they’re all grown up.
They’ll grow up and never truly understand or return the love.
Until they have their own. Then, they’ll understand how they’ve been loved, they will love and their children will do the same to them.
Water flows down, just as love flows down from one generation to the other.
So when your toddler or baby is calling for you…no matter how tired you are, no matter what time of the night it is and no matter how many times you’ve already gotten up…embrace it. Enjoy it. Soon enough, they’ll stop calling.
