I missed last month, but I’m back to the Clickin Moms 12 month challenge: “The way I view….” Remember how it works? This is a circle, so at the end of the post, I’ll remind you to visit the incredible Heather Manor Photography, to see Heather’s take on …
“The way I view Motherhood.”
I struggled with this. Obvious choice? A mother-child photo. But then one morning, I woke up and saw this (thank goodness my camera was nearby).
Yes, that angelic little face. The face of my little angel who wakes up before I do, and happily climbs out of her crib and joins me in bed. Sometimes she even cuddles! And sometimes she confuses my bed not just with her own bed, but also with a trampoline.
Not only is it tiring to jump on my bed, but apparently it’s thirsty work, too. Yes, my daughter travels with her paci, her blankie, and her own waterbottle.
Unfortunately, this little one knows how cute I think she is. Check out this mischievous little grin!
It’s always preferable to wake up to the grin, than to the feet, however.
Just when I’ll think perhaps my daughter is going to settle in for a real snuggle (aka, I might be able to go back to sleep)…I see another head peeking over our bed!
Sleep is clearly a lost cause. Playtime has arrived!
After a last series of death-defying feats (aka, learning to do somersaults), it’s clearly time to go down for breakfast.
And while lying lazily in bed of a morning may be a treasure I don’t often experience anymore, when I look at these little faces, it’s impossible not to see the greater treasure that I have now.
Ha! Sappy enough for you? Ah, Mother’s Day. (On said day, I did get to sleep in, with no kids actually in the bed, anyway!)
Now, don’t forget to check out Heather‘s view on motherhood (it’ll make you laugh, and nod in agreement)!
