The Baby Whisperer says it is comforting for babies to hear the same reassuring words at bedtime every night and every time you have to go in to comfort them in the night. So to my little boy, I would say something like, "good night, Honey, it's time for bed, now, I'll see you in the morning."
Nine years later, I still say, "good night, Honey, I'll see you in the morning." He still repeats it back to me.
But tonight he said, "I'll see the best Mom in the world, in the morning."
Awww, sometimes he melts my heart.
