Lately - and I have no idea how this began - the boys have started a habit of sneaking into our room and into our bed when they wake up in the morning. A bad dream, eager to start the day, anxious for a cuddle, this reason and that... different reasons. But we have found that nearly every morning in the last week, by 6:45am there are somewhere between two and four little boys in our bed.
I absolutely love this (when it's AFTER 6.30am).
But Hubby and I both agree that as a general rule we do NOT like the kids in bed with us.
Oh, but how sweet is the early morning cuddle with a tiny baby and cute toddlers not yet awake enough to be whacking each other over the head and shoving each other off the bed. They snuggle in close and "tunnel" down under the covers, entertaining the baby and laughing so sweetly.
I want to savor it, because of course the phase is somewhat short lived. I mean, can you picture my 13, 14, 15, and 16 year old lanky teenagers squeezing like sardines into our bed, let alone wanting to, let alone even being ALLOWED into my bedroom?
To allow them to continue to join us in the wee hours of the morning, or not? I don't know. Because it is so sweet, it's definitely a hard habit to break.
