Perfect Moments Monday

All together now:

We have all had a little bout of sickness this past week (seems just like a little nasty cold virus). My time finally came this weekend. She had been on/off again sick all week, I had stayed home with her on Friday--about the time I started feeling icky and she was obviously starting to feel better.

Saturday early morning. She started coughing herself awake. So, I brought her into our bed. I do not believe in family beds, but I do feel that if a child is sick or needs comforting...or the parent is just too damned tired to take the child into their bed for the umpteenth billionth time...its okay on occasion. My son sometimes comes into our bed within the last hour of the morning, just for that sleepy/awake-ish snuggle. So, she was in our bed around 5 a.m. Around 6 a.m.--my son comes into the bed to snuggle. And then the cat comes up to me, begging to lay on my hip and be petted.

7 a.m. - we are all together now. The bed is: me on the edge, cat curled up on my hip, son and daughter in a mish mash/cross over each other type thing in the middle, husband on the other edge. I laid there and enjoyed the moment, if not the sleep.

The family bed IS such a perfect thing.

But only in short doses and only once in awhile.

Others may disagree, but I'm with you. Sounds like a sweet moment.

Sounds like a wonderfully perfect moment!

And I really like your new layout.

A wonderful perfect moment...even if the sickies is what brought it upon you. Hope you all feel better soon!

Valerie said...

Yes it does sound like the perfect moment!

I'm visiting from Lori's Perfect Moment Monday ( to check out your Perfect Moment!

I agree with Luz, the family bed is perfect...sometimes.

When one of our kids comes into our bed, it's amazing how they end up diagonal across the bed and me and hubby are hugging the sides.

Thanks for sharing your Perfect Moment!

I love those rare mornings, where we can all cuddle and grab a few more zzz's together!

I love morning snuggle time in bed.
