Lady Luck

I believe that I am one lucky lady. I have three beautiful (or handsome) little boys and an amazing husband! Tonight I took Harrison to see the Backyardigans. He liked it, but what I truly liked was watching him watch hit. Seeing it through his eyes made the whole thing worth my time. I love having one on one time with each child and as Brady and Jack get older we will be doing it more often with them too. I feel so blessed everytime I look at Dan and the boys. I am so thankful for all that I have been given. As I type this the rest of the house is sleeping and I should be too. I put a load of cloth diapers in the wash a little too late, but at the time time I am enjoying this time of reflection. I just checked on all three of them and they all looked like sleeping angels. I could literally have stood there for hours staring at them. Don't you just love them when they're asleep? Even Harrison still looks like he did as a baby when he's sleeping. However, my 6:00 am run will be here before I know it, so I better get to sleep. Night-night!

For a second, I thought this post was about me!

But I totally agree with everything you said. I so often get caught up in the hubbub of daily life that I forget how truly, truly lucky I am to have the life that I have.

Very nice thoughts. Daddy is away so the little guy was in bed with me last night sleeping. When I was done reading, I just curled up to him and stared at him and hugged him. I couldn't stop saying I love you. I almost wanted him to wake up so he would know the urgency of it. Definitely blessed!!!

We peek on the kids over and over each night- luckily they are sound sleepers! I LOVE when they moved to big kid beds and I could lay with them at night and cuddle and just listen to them breathe- that time is so rewarding and relaxing!

love the post, love watching my daughter sleep even as she just turned 11! It never changes. Morning runs come so early, but don't you love the chill in the air? It's lovely in Alabama these days...

My husband and I once took Big Brother to see the live show of Thomas the Tank Engine and yes, it is WONDERFUL/INCREDIBLE/AWESOME to see the wonder and sheer joy and excitement in your child's eyes. We LOVED it! I bet Backyardigans was fun. THomas put on a great show! :) I, too, love to see those precious angels sleeping!
