Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

At what age did you stop watching your kids sleep?

Posted by   + Show Post

My youngest:

So watching babies sleep and snapping pics is normal. I still check up on my 7 year old when she sleeps because I'm a wuss like that. But it's weird to think of my mom watching me sleep as an adult and taking pictures(she doesn't, lol). How long did you watch your kids sleep or check up on them? 

Oh, and feel free to post pics of your sleeping kids!

I don't think I have ever watched my kids sleep.  

I must be missing some maternal instinct chip, because my first instinct when either of them are asleep is to leave them alone and do some things without them hanging all over me.

I also don't miss them or worry about them when they are with their grandparents, or feel the need to call them everyday, or any of that stuff.

I wonder why I am like that...

i never 'watched' my kid sleep.  that's just creepy.  I stopped checking on them after they were asleep before they turned one (unless they're very ill)
