Asleep

They are perfect little beings, all their quirks making them that much more so.

Rooster sideways in her bed, raises up her head as I go to move her, mumbles, lays her head back down, clutching her blankie close.

I cover her up and kiss her head.


an e-mail from my husband, received while I was traveling.

How angelic sleeping children are. More than makes up for their sometimes devilish days!

When my two kids were younger I can remember sometimes wishing there was an "off" switch! When they were asleep, I loved looking at their innocent faces resting . . . recognizing that they were simply recharging so they could exhaust me again!

They are 13 and 9 now - and I love them to pieces! I still like to look in on them and cherish their older, but still innocent faces.

Thanks for reminding me of those times.

Usually when a mother travels or go somewhere far, she really misses her children that she tend to check them every 30 minutes or so. It is really hard for moms to be away from their children.

Love it.

My husband's messages to me while I'm away are usually things like: "Your daughter flushed your good pearls down the toilet. Miss you."

Dude, stop with these notes from your husband lest we all fall head over heels for him and your brood.

Watching sleeping children has got to be the biggest joy on earth...
