As a special holiday treat, Miss7, Master6 & Miss4 are sleeping together in one room. I’m in awe of how kids can find a thrill in the little things.
I guess, as an adult, we’re always having to consider the bigger picture and foresee potential problems – for example, I am a little worried about the dutch oven effect in their room because they had lots of fruit today. Of course, having foreseen this I can choose to do something about it – if one of them wakes up later tonight I’m sending Tracey in.
Naturally, sleep was very low on their agenda when I first turned off the light. For a little while I stood outside their door and listened as my monkeys chuckled and talked. These will be the moments they reminisce about when they’re older.
