Does anyone else watch their children sleep sometimes, and think about how lucky they are and blessed?

I find myself doing this a lot with my twins that are eight. I will look at them all sound a sleep in their beds, and I thank god for them. I always give them a kiss or five lol...and they will always make a little smile appear. They do it to me sometimes when I am sleeping, I love it.

  • I think, "He's so cute and quiet when he's sleeping, too bad he couldn't be that quiet when he's awake."

  • yes....I love to watch my baby sleep....he's 8. When he was tiny in my arms, I would just swaddle him all day long. Miss those days :)

  • Yes, my heart swells watching DS sleep. I'm so lucky to have a healthy, beautiful child that is so wonderful. I'm grateful to have him, and I've definitely caught myself watching him sleep and counted my lucky stars!

  • I still do it lol. My daughters are petite...I love it because I can still hold them tight. They love it, they havent gotten to that stage that they are like noooo mom. I always scoop them up. They can make a bad day feel so much better.

  • I thank God all the time for my children blessings. I have never been in love or loved as much as with my children. I may get frustrated, but I always tell my kids I love them and they are everything to me. There is nothing in the world that would ever stop me from loving them. After I thank God for my treasures, I thank God they are sleeping. After all, I can only handle so many adventures in a day.
