Every Night

Alice waiting at Eli's door

This is Alice.

Most nights Alice comes scooting into 5yo Eli’s room during stories at bedtime. Sometimes she’s late and only makes it for songs. And sometimes she’s distracted altogether and doesn’t make it in before the door closes.

So she waits. Because every night she likes to spend at least a portion of her slumber curled up on Eli’s bed.

I often hear her purring in her sleep. And sometimes I find Eli petting her in his sleep.

They make such a cute pair, and I’m grateful they have such a sweet connection!

If you have pets, where do they sleep at night?

      Thanks! What’s funny is that Eli wants nothing to do with either of the dogs sleeping with him. He’s very partial to his kitty kitty. 🙂
