Perfect Moment Monday

This weekend I was sick. But, even when you are sick, perfect moments happen...

Moment #1: I come home from work on Friday feeling awful. Husband says "I will take care of the kids--go to sleep--NOW." I then go to bed the earliest I have in a looong time--8 p.m. Secure in the knowledge that, indeed, he can take care of them.

Moment #2: Around 9:30 p.m. that night, my son climbs into bed with me. He is having trouble falling asleep. At this point, so am I. We play shadow figures on the ceiling and I am happy to spend this quiet time with just him.

Moment #3: Sunday morning. She wakes up startled at 5 a.m. It is too early and I am too sick. I bring her into our bed and she snuggles down. At 8 a.m. she stretches her body out in a biiiiig yawn and opens her bright eyes right at me.

So sweet! I love that your husband took over and took care of you by letting you get the rest you needed!

Hope you're starting to finally feel better!

How sweet. Sometimes being sick is the only time we get to slow down..


Enjoy those treasures.

You should "get sick" more often.

I love the image of you making shadows on the ceiling with your son.

You have a special family!

I hope you are feeling better and thanks for sharing the love and cuteness of your kiddos. Love the shadow figures, Rock On, Michael, you too, Willow!

woohoo! You hit the family jackpot. I hope you're feeling better.

I would have to agree. Perfect moments. All 3 of them minus the fact that you were sick. Waking up to a bleary eyed little one curled up next to you has to be the best thing EVER! Feel better.

Small moments make such a big impact!

Things I haven't had the chance of doing yet or been prevented from doing: See my son's presentation on Rabies for his biology ...
