I <3 Window Time

My favorite time of day is Window Time.

Dylan’s bed is positioned right below a window and every time he gets up from a nap he groggily pulls himself up to the window and looks out. He is at his most adorable and most affectionate at this time. He is also very serene. He takes Window Time seriously and has a few rules that we both must follow. If I behave I am rewarded with cuddles and hugs.

The first rule is that when he is awake and motions towards the window, I am required to pull back the curtain and raise the blinds. The next rule is that I must look out the window too.  I am to put my head at his level (which requires nearly resting my chin on the windowsill) and stare outward at the trees. If I cheat and look at him looking out the window, he firmly redirects my head outward. (I still peek because he is too cute not to look.) He then drapes an arm around my neck and hangs on me a little as we stare out at the woods, the sun, the sky…it’s as if he is saying, “Hey, Mom, check it out. This world is all mine.”

Window time is awesome but only Mommy gets all the hugs and kisses. He will do well at nursing homes in his late 90s.

We should get him a fish to stare at too. BTW, I get the kisses but you get the giggles so we’re even.
