Perfect Moment Monday

Moment #1: He always gets to pick out which bed is his when we get to a hotel room. And since he is small and we are large, the double beds are not big enough for the both my husband and I in one bed. So, I get the luxury to sleep in the same bed as my ten year old. Having an excuse to cuddle him is one of those moments I will miss as he gets older. During the second night away, I woke up with a start, not knowing where I was. The thick furry legs of my partner were not there. Instead they were the lanky, stick like legs of my son poking into my stomach. And all was right with the world again.

Moment #2: She kisses her baby doll. A big wet open mouthed kiss with a "mMmmmmmph" for emphasis. Then she kisses her stuffed monkey. Several times. And hugs him. And then she comes over to me. And plants several very messy kisses on my mouth. And pats my back in a hug. I do not remember such affection from my son at this age. It must be a girl thing, I think. I embrace my daughter.

There is something so sweet about sleeping with your child.

Cuddles and kisses -- doesn't get much better than that!

That sounds awesome! When we visit my mom's house my nieces argue over who gets to snuggle with us at night. I love that.
