Mama’s Bed

For quite some time, my fragmented nights were filled with at least one baby in my bed.  And then we went through several periods of comforting and adjusting and reassuring.  And cold water and extra kisses and other night waking things.  I still peek into their room to watch their chests rise and fall – and relish in how I continue to see the baby in them while they are sleeping.

My beautiful illustrations of grace and peace.

For the most part, we’ve been coasting through smooth nights for well over a year.  I suppose I wish I could time travel to inform the frazzled me that true rest was just around the corner.  Every now and then, someone needs cold water or an extra snuggle and sometimes we wake up extra early to a sweet surprise.  A reminder of what once was.


It is positively glorious.



  1. When my older son comes home from college, i still go into his room in the morning while he’s still sleeping and kiss his head.

  2. Awww…what a sweet post. Cherish these moments mama, they go by too quickly. Before you know it, you’ll be kissing them goodbye as they head to College.

  3. Awe, this is beautiful! I miss my morning snuggles with my little man!

  4. Such a sweet post. I absolutely love snuggling with my little ones – I fear that my heart will break when they become too old for momma love! xo Cherish each moment!

  5. What a beautiful photo of your children. There really is nothing like watching children sleeping-they look like little angels.

  6. I really miss morning snuggles. I have a feeling morning goodbye kisses are going to stop next year once my daughter starts middle school. Definitely treasure those moments while you can!

  7. Your babies are beautiful. I wish we could keep them that innocent and peaceful forever.

  8. Such a sweet post 🙂 Hope you get some extra snuggles over the weekend!

  9. I love that my teenage son still likes to snuggle sometimes or even hold my hand.
