sometimes of the important things, so that's why this layout is here today. From this month's Scrapbook Creations.
This is my baby. But I can't really call him a baby any more, as he's a 5 yr old school kid. A couple of nights ago I babysat a friend's two delightful little girls. It was so easy - they went right to bed when they were supposed to, and I was able to sit and read a book, watch tv, have a cup of tea - while Pete was at home trying to get our slightly-less-cooperative-at-bedtime children organised.
So last night I was cranky that Max wouldn't go to sleep in his own bed. Even told him that he was naughty. I don't know what I was expecting when we have allowed him to fall asleep in our arms for 5 years. Anyway, all was forgiven when 1am rolled around and like clockwork, he crawled into bed with us.
It should be so easy and natural - why do we have to have these big human brains that worry about silly stuff like that?
Not sure if you can read the journaling, so here it is:
Yes, you are almost 5 and quite
capable of being put to bed on
your own, but this is how you
still fall asleep many nights.
I guess many people would
say that we're spoiling you.
I just know that I will never
in my life regret the hours spent
watching those little eyelids
grow slowly heavy,
and kissing the top
of your sweet head.
