Best gift ever

Tonight I put T to bed. This is usually Rob's time with T each night, but he was at choir rehearsal tonight, so I had the pleasure of the nighttime routine. Bath, jammies, bedtime story, and when it's my night, a bedtime song. Both Rob & I have been getting him to say "Goodnight Mama" or "Goodnight Daddy" before we leave the room.

Here is how it usually goes:
Dad (or Mom): "Goodnight, T."
T: "Goodnight T." (repeating what he hears)
Dad (or Mom): "Goodnight T. Say Goodnight Daddy."
T: "Goodnight Daddy."

But tonight, when I finished his bedtime song, he looked right at me and said "Goodnight Mama."

5 1/2 years old. My birthday is in a few days. I just got my best birthday present EVER.
