You’re Beautiful…

by Janice

Do you ever roll over in the morning (or in the middle of the night) to find a tiny little body or two tucked in your bed?

Jackson 4 Years Old

It is Jackson’s favorite game, to creep into our room in the middle of the night and sleep in our bed.

The warm morning snuggle makes up for the loss of leg room during the night, so sometimes I don’t mind too much.

But today the sweetness meter burst over the top when he woke up and began to sing “You’re beautiful, it’s true…” My little four year old boy singing to me on a sunny spring morning – James Blunt serenading me himself couldn’t have touched it.

I wish I was there with a video camera for that moment. How come kids are so darn cute and know just how to melt your little heart!!!
Sage’s two fave things to say to me right now are:
“This is so happy mommy!!!” in a cheerful make me want to cry or kiss her like crazy voice.
“Mommy you need to talk to me.” She says this in the car if there has been too long(like two seconds) of an absence of conversation:)
I love the kiddies.

I read this and it made me sing that one line…and my daughter that is home sick today said, “Aww, mommy…you’re beautiful too!”


And to answer your question…yes, sometimes I find FIVE of them in bed with me.

Crystal – love that Sage says “mommy you need to talk to me.” that is classic. Very good that she is expressing her feelings! and way too cute…

Kristine – thanks so much for visiting and commenting.

I loved your site and spend at least 30 minutes there this am. I really like your “about me” profile. very funny – and i totally agree with #18 “i’m pretty sure the world will come crashing in the day my mom dies.” my twin sister and my mom are also my bestest friends.

As you can see we are new, and i am just going to set up my blog roll – but you are definitely going to be on it.

Our daughter likes to sleep with us… it is so cute. She is two and she can barely talk… when we ask her to go to her bed she will respond by saying something like “no, stay wit mommy an daddy”. When she does that it just melts your heart (smile).
