rested


Someone (actually, Deb)

asked for a picture of our new set up,

our 'Hotel Us,'

our All Together

snugged up

sweetsleeping

arrangement.



Well,

here 'tis:





Exactly!  :)



And 


—who for weeks and weeks and weeks 

have been waking through the night

getting up in the night

not going to bed 'til 3am 'cos if sleep's not coming why go to bed—


have been sleeping.


Sleeping soundly.

Waking in the night

to find myself rocked back to slumber 

by the deep dreambreath of my children.


It feels like 

someone has poured nectar in

and I. 

have.

rested.

  4. My girls each have their own room, but most often choose to sleep together in one twin bed in one of their rooms (usually who ever is least messy!).

    When the girls were little we often thought of a family bed, but our bedroom is not big enough..it would mean knocking down walls.

    So glad to have found you!!
