Sheeping beauty

Yes, it is not a typo. It feels so much better to pronounce it as 'sheeping beauty' than sleeping beauty. I am a father to a 2-year-old son and the best feeling for me is when I trying to put my little hero to sleep. I have created so many jingles in the process and now, my son signs along those jingles when I try to put him to sleep. I hold him in my arms (spread) and walk around singing those jingles. 10 minutes of walk and he slowly goes to sleep. Then, when I put him on the bed, he holds my arm tight even in sleep. That is even more blissful. Yes, my wife is jealous looking at the bonding we share, but I am not in thew same city as she is. So I get to see them only during weekends. My neighbour recently was telling my sister, "Your brother and his son make up for the loss of bonding time during the week with such closeness during weekends that it is a treat to watch." And why not!
