Daddy and I stopped by to tuck you in and read a bedtime story. We chose "Guess How Much I Love You" because that is a game your daddy and I have played with each other for years and we look forward to playing it with you very soon, little nutbrown hare. We didn't want to bother you too much, since you need your rest. We held your perfect little toes, kissed your sweet little knees, let our fingertips feel your precious chest rise and fall with each breath, stroked the bridge of your adorable nose, and rubbed your your soft little forehead.
Sleep well, little man and gather your strength for tomorrow's adventure. We will be there by 6am to see you before they whisk you away at 7. One of your surgeon's nurses will update us every hour on the progress of the adventure. Dr. M believes you will complete your adventure in about 8 hours. Daddy and I will be there to shower you with toe hugs and knee kisses just as soon as we are cleared to do so!
So goodnight, my love. Sleep tight. Don't let the bed bugs bite. And remember: we love you to the moon...and back.
