Family Life - Bedtime
Its one of the most wonderful moments ever the point when you realise your children are sound asleep.
I remember when I was little my mum saying - jokingly of course - 'I love you most when you are asleep'. As a child, who thought nothing could be better than spending time with me, I never quite understood how she could possibly prefer me asleep - surely I was more fun to be around when I was awake?!
Now I completely understand!
Of course I love my girls when they are awake but there is something rather peaceful and contemplative about watching your children sleeping. I think possibly you can appreciate them without actually having to 'do' anything.
