  • Yes, I have always marveled being the mom of four how that after I got them all to bed I'd go to each room and just watch them sleep. They look like such angels and no one is crying or talking back.

  • I love to watch my DS sleep. I just look at him and think you are so precious and cute. I love to watch him not move and not touching things. I think you look so innocent NOW.

  • Absolutely! I marvel at how lucky and blessed I am that God gave me this precious little being to watch grow and care for. It is an awesome responsibility that I am so unbelievably lucky to have the opportunity to witness. I want to remember that sweet little baby face, those eyelashes girls would kill for, those sweet little rosebud lips, the tip of that cute little ski slope nose, etc. It is such a short time and it goes too, too quickly.

  • I have, yes.

    When I woke up as a child to my mom doing the same thing, I thought it was creepy.

  • Yes, I do. They are so sweet and peaceful and no fighting. I think how much I love them and how thankful I am to have them.

  • Sometimes I do when I peek in at them before I go to bed. I think about how amazing it is that my little monsters can look so peaceful lol. And also usually how I can not believe how much it is possible to love someone.
