This week my #MySundayPhoto is; ‘Let sleeping toddlers lie’.
I had to choose this photo for this week edition of My Sunday photo because what is in the photo doesn’t happen very often now. It has been well over a year now since Olivia stopped having naps in the day. It was a very sad day indeed when that happened.
So on the rare occasion when she does, I will take the opportunity for a cuddle. As long as I’ve got the TV remote or my phone to hand. Sure I still get them from Robyn when I’m putting her down for her midday nap but a chance to cuddle Olivia to sleep in the middle of the day doesn’t come around that much.
I feel exactly the same way if she comes into our bedroom in the middle of the night and wants to get into bed with us. Yes, I’m probably making a rod for my own back everytime I do it. Yes, there are loads of advice articles out there that tells you not to do it and to put them back in their own beds but come on, a chance to sleep next to your child and have them cuddle up to for comfort and warmth is a feeling that is second to none.
So I will take every opportunity there is, while it’s there because one day it might not be.
