If there is someone who knows you more than anyone, that would be your mom. I have kids, and I know almost everything what is going on by just looking at their faces, hearing the tone of their voices, the expression in their eyes and their body language. I have 3 and 5 years old boys; they can communicate well and express themselves more openly now and that makes life easier. At home we always try to put them in bed at 8 o'clock every night. We read them their books, kiss them and say goodnight. Last night when I put Everett to bed, I noticed that there was uncertainty in his face, and he keep staring at me; I just ignored it. I kissed him and said "Night, night," and then started to leave, but before I reached the door, he called me "Mommy!" I looked back at him and asked, "Yes, what's wrong?" and I heard him say " Afraid." I was not sure if I heard him right so I finally lay down with him and asked him again, and he said this time, " I am afraid." I was a little surprised and asked "Why?" He didn't answer, but I could tell that he was feeling afraid. He has big, brown eyes, and they are very expressive. I told him that Mommy is going to pray and that he has to say the prayer after me. "Now I lay me down to sleep..." then I prayed for peace and comfort for him "....in Jesus name, Amen." He was smiling when I opened my eyes to look at him. Its amazing how prayer can do. I gave him a kiss and a tight hug before leaving his room. I was still wondering why he felt that way last night. I realized that I am still learning much about my kids' behavior.
