one big bed
Last night was the first night we all were able to sleep in one room. Granted, it would be nice if big M would sleep in his own room all night, but hes always had a hard time sleeping, and since little em was born he and daddy slept in the living room, on the pull-out. We all got lots of sleep, but sorta missed each other. So last night we made a bed for big M on the floor beside ours and little em, me and the dad all crammed on the queen bed. Actually, we slept more than I anticipated, and it was so nice to be all together again.
At the Le Leche League meeting, the husband of our leader and I had a couple words. He told me how, even though, at the time it was difficult, he now misses waking up and watching his son and wife sleeping beside him. He said it with tears in his eyes.It kind of hit home with me, and I know these days of a full bed are to be savored. When my huge boys tower over me, and I am throwing food at them as teenagers, I can remember these nights, when we all slept together, enjoying the quiet sound of eachother's breathing.
