41 In Life

Last Night


At some point during the night they both made their way to our bed. It made for a rough {squished} night but a beautiful morning.

    It’s funny how frustration in the middle of the night can turn to such a sweet moment in the morning. God bless you and your family.

    Must have been the weather… my daughter found her way to our bed as well. Nothing sweeter than snuggling with them in the morning!

    Must be in the water, Jillian did the same thing last night 🙂 I didn’t understand, but just thankful to have a 10year old that still needs her mama and likes to snuggle! (the only bad thing is she is as big as me and likes to move around a lot! Thankful for a king size bed!)

    Too cute & looks oh so familiar (to what goes on in my house).
    I noticed you no longer have the chenille beadspread. I had
    considered getting it for my guest room. Did it not wear well
    or did you just switch it for fun or b/c of weather? Thanks!!!

    Too cute! I used to try to pull this when I was their age, but having ankles that popped every time I walked, and a dad who is a light sleeper – he would hear me trying to walk through the house, and I’d get asked kindly to head back to my own bed… I always felt defeat.
    PS – where is your bedspread from? I have a white coverlet from crate & barrel, but it is very stiff…

    I took Will to bed with me because I felt bad for yelling so much yesterday. (It happens w/ 3 boys) Bad move…he rolled around like one of those squirrel balls at Cracker Barrel. I woke up with him on my head, Jake on my feet and Mason standing in the crib with his wet diaper in one hand. Is it bedtime yet?

    How comfy-cozy they look!
    I miss those days, but our kids brought snacks with them!
    We would wake up with pieces of fruit rollups in our hair.

    Sweet, warm bodies in the morning are definitely the upside to having lots of bodies squished into one bed at night! So cute!

    and still so desirous of your fabric headboard (and the fact that you got it at Goodwill doesn’t help .. at least I think I remember you getting it there …. right? wrong?)

    Ok…something’s in the water. This happened at our house, too. Only they pulled the comforter off the bed and made their own bed on the floor. (We’re in a queen…) I got up around 3am and tripped on T’s boots…I figured I just didn’t realize they’d been left out. Whatever. Come to find out, LIttle Man pulled out all T’s boots…sometime before 3am!

    I know!!! Avery makes her way to our room just about every dawn. We lament it on the outside, but on the few mornings she stays in her own room, I miss snuggling with her!

    95% of the time, Jack crawls into bed with us during the night. I secretly love it despite the cramped quarters! Two nights ago he came in (he always wants to be right in the middle) and he said “I have no ROOM! You guys need to move!!” LOL. It was so funny hearing that from a sleepy 3 year old at 4 am.
