Because motherhood will never be a perfect science


on May 22, 2012

One of my favourite times of day is early in the morning when I first wake up. One or both of the kids always ends up in the bed with me at some time during the night. (I’ve stopped fighting that battle!) I love looking at them sprawled out as if they own the bed. Totally oblivious to the discomfort I experienced during the night as I clung to the edge while they snored like little truckers. They somehow are totally in sync with each other, so that as one turns the other does too into a comfortable and mutual position making room for elbows, knees and heads. Oh…every so often they miss a turn and bump into each other and cry out in mild discomfort only to fall back asleep. But then they get back into their groove and Baby girl’s diapered posterior rests comfortably on Diva girl’s head or an arm is thrown over a chest or a leg across the stomach. No matter the position they are at rest and it’s amazing to watch. They are so peaceful in those moments…

I watch them lovingly, as I try to straighten out the kink in my back and the pain in my neck, wondering what I did with the Advil.

Sigh…I love being a mom.
