The Ordinary Moments...Sleeping Monsters.

One of my favourite parts of the day is the 2 minutes before I go to bed...

When I go upstairs, and pop into the monsters room's and tuck them in for the night. 

Their faces so peaceful, after a day causing mayhem. Their little bodies so still after hours of running around, hours of climbing, non stop since they woke at 6am. 

Elsie's little lips doing a sucky thing on her tongue whilst she snuggles up to her blanket. Evie with her Mr Snuggles snuggled close by. Jenson usually in a different part of the bed to where you left him and Ellie...well Ellie has usually stripped off, it doesn't matter what time of year it is she is always hot (and sweaty!!!).

A time for me to push aside the parts of the day that, well weren't great. The part of the day where all of a sudden the tantrums and the naughty moments of the day are forgotten, as I stroke their hair and kiss their foreheads and whisper goodnight and I love you. And sometimes, if they wake up then I lay down with them for one last sleepy snuggle...

The ordinary everyday moments when you think Wow I Made That...

Their are no photos of Ellie on this post as she is adamant that I will be the worlds worst/most embarrassing mum EVER if I posted pictures of her sleeping!

  1. Soooooo so lovely. I always get told off for kissing z too much when he's sleeping. :) lovely photos c

  2. This is an adorable post, and such sweet photos. I must admit that I love doing the same, although as my son is such a poor sleeper I've only been able to do it for the last year or so. Before that he'd wake up if I snuck in and take forever to re-settle. I love that I can sneak in and give him a kiss and whisper in his ear now. It is a beautiful moment in parenting :-)

  3. Awww this is so lovely and such gorgeous gorgeous photos. There's nothing better than seeing them all snuggled up in the evening. I always want to wake mine up, but I never ever do! ;) x

  4. For literally years I didn't check on the babies before bed, relying on the baby monitors and too worried about waking them but now I check them before bed and seeing them sleeping is one of the best thing. Gorgeous photos and beautiful post x
