Do you peek in on your kids at night?

Every night, I go in and check on the kids before I head to bed. I absolutely love seeing them sleep, and find it adorable when I hear them snoring! I sneak in, give them a kiss, whisper "I love you, baby" and sneak back out. Sometimes in their sleep they will smile or even say it back! ODD even asks every night "You be back to check me later, Mommy?" (she's 2). She can't sleep unless I tell her I'm going to check on her. They all know I do it because if they have a bad dream, I'll comfort them, get them tucked back in, and tell them I will be back to check them later. So they know I do it. They are only 4, 2, and 1. Every time I sneak in, I think of that book I LOVE YOU FOREVER. Because I would totally rock them and cuddle them if I wasn't afraid of waking them up. lol.

Do you check on your kids every night? Or am I just one of those weird moms that do? lol

  • I do it too! They re so busy during the day, especially my 5yo, he doesn't cuddle anymore. So when he's sleeping it's like he's still my little baby.

  • Every night and my kids are 17, 14 & 8. Sometimes I don't get to check in on my 17 yr old... we might go to bed at the same time. But I will always sneak a peek andwisper "I Lover You" !

  • Oh yes, I do it with my baby and my teens still. The teens don't know I still do that. lol. My 19 year old was given king size bed by her Aunt. When I went to check on her last night, she looked so very tiny in it. Too sweet.

  • Mine is just 5, and yes, I do. Although, in reality, he's in my bed anyway, so it's pretty easy

  • Every night all night. I am somewhat of an insomniac so yea I like to just stand there and look at them. I will even admit to having a good cry a time or 2 cuz they are getting so big so fast. : *(

  • Yes I do. Everytime I get up I check on them. Make sure they are covered or not, depending on the temp, kiss them and whisper in their ear how much they are loved.

  • Everytime I do I wake mine up, then on days she actually sleeps through the night by herself I wake up panicked and run to her room to make sure she's still breathing
