Tossing and turning
That’s our recent bed time routine.
A while ago it was nursing and then he turned away a slept.
Now he turns away and starts to turn and roll and sit up and lay down – I’m happy that I haven’t bruises in my face yet or a knocked out tooth because changing positions is often very spontaneous and energetic.
He’s growing so fast that I often wonder when this will end.
I love our family bed – is there something more cuts than a tiny hand that searches for you at night and a little sigh of relief when it touches you.
Mommy is here, sleep tight!
I know that these days will go by sooner or later and therefore I try especially during nights which are not only relaxed but sleepless to remember that.
One day I will miss these nights, even the sleepless ones when I was hit without warning by an arm or a leg. One day I would wish that this tiny hand would rest on my arm.
I always try to live in the moment and to enjoy and see the positive in every situation but as a mother this now is another dimension – all of a sudden I realise the reason why it is so important.
We build memories with every single ‘now’ moment which cannot be captured by pictures or words, only our heart and soul are able to treasure these nows.
Build as many memories as you can, these are the important things in life!
