Counting My Blessings...

This last weekend was Thanksgiving and I don't know if it made me appreciate everything a little more or not but I was definitely feeling very reflective . Captain went to bed as normal however, by 2:30 I heard him sneaking in my room. I asked him if he was OK and he told me he'd had three nightmares and could he have a snuggle.

Normally I let him jump in for a couple of minutes and then send him on his way, but for some reason his added plea of 'Mom, I nearly went to Jam's bed but I knew that only you could make me feel safe!". Oh my goodness my heart swelled up like crazy. I realized I couldn't remember the last time my baby (don't tell him I said that) had come in for a snuggle in the middle of the night. I realized that these days will be getting fewer and further between. So I decided to let him stay. He snuggled all night and gave me a huge hug in the morning and said how much he loved me, and how much he needed to snuggle the night before.

Of course I didn't sleep as well but believe me it was worth it. As I led there watching him sleep I was reminded how much I love being a Mom. I even enjoyed (looking back) all those late, interrupted nights. I know that there will be other nights when Mom is the only one that will do and I will try to cherish them.

Man, I miss those little kids.
