A couple of nights ago I was putting Reindeer to bed and a funny thing happened.
At the moment he likes me to sit by the bed while he falls asleep – not a problem because I normally need a sit down by then anyway! He’ll usually settle quickly and be asleep within 10 minutes.
This time he was lying quietly and I thought he was about to drop off. Suddenly he started laughing – not a little giggle but a big chuckle. And he kept chuckling for several minutes. He didn’t wake up/sit up or otherwise request attention. All I can assume is that he’d been thinking back on the day and remembered something that really amused him.
When things like this happen I feel so cheered and relieved that Reindeer is such a happy little chap!
