Snuggled

Here they are snuggled in their beds. Fancy beds. They still sleep on their crib mattresses.


Sira now sleeps in Bereket's bed. I see he has Bereket's beloved "little pillow".


At first Bereket refused a bed mate, but seeing how upset Sira was to sleep alone in the dark, he invited him in. Now this is the way we put the two to bed. Of course we can't leave the odd man out, so Tsega's bed moved closer. Ohhh, the small years in the dark of night. A monster lurks . . .

Here they are snuggled in mom and dad's bed.


These two always find a way to be close.


Dad on couch because if all three end up here during the night, which isn't uncommon this summer, somebody's got to give it up (I find a pattern in the bad to contort my body more easily than Jerry). FYI, Sira and Bereket snore really loud. Funny, we just had our 4 year well check up and the doctor handed us some papers and on one, it said your child should always sleep in his own bed. Why?

Well I don't know why a kid should always sleep alone. My kiddo goes to bed in her room alone and by midnight she has crawled into my bed and sleeping soundly.
I don't mind, I figure these days are pretty short lived.

Your boys are so cute and I always marvel that you have THREE little boys!

My twins frequently sleep in the same bed too. We recently moved them to regular sized beds instead of their toddler beds, so it's a little roomier... but I love the way they always burrow right up next to each other, just like your sweet boys.

My twins are in the same bed. Refuse to sleep separately, though the trundle bed is not even detached. Ok by me except for when they want ME to stay in there for a bit after reading. Then it is a little snug and I begin rallying for separate beds.

Burn the piece of paper and enjoy your pile o' sleeping kids. I find the scene rather perfect in every way.

Ha! More like they should ALWAYS end up in someone else's bed by morning :)

Heh. That's about as good as our pedi telling us that kids just have to be told to go to bed to get them there. Um, right, thanks. Helpful. :) I think your kidlettes look charming, and snuggling is one of my favorite activities with our littles. I agree; they're only this small once!

Beautiful!! Absolutely and completely beautiful! Nothing like sleeping children to stop the heart of a mother - precious!
