Now, if the noise is mistakenly turned to the soothing sounds of waves crashing and seagulls...gulling, Calvin will softly demand, "frogs." It is adorable. The boys both laugh simultaneously when they picture hundreds of ribbeting frogs and buzzing bugs swimming around a lake on a warm summer night.
Tonight I spent a few extra moments with Calvin, dancing away to the sounds of frogs. I almost put him down in his crib to fight sleep alone, but tonight was different. He was tired and almost far away in Neverland. I stuck it out and right as he fell asleep, light reflecting from the clock, he looked up and said, "Thank you." I almost cried right there, a midst the bugs and frogs, buzzing and ribbeting.
