I truly love sleeping in bed with my kids-- LOVE it-- but I also know that overindulging in those sweet moments can create bad habits, something I've been hellbent on avoiding since day one. And snuggling with Ava is the absolute best.
In my sleepy slumber, I would wake to her kissing my forehead, saying "Sweet Deems Mommy"-- the very thing I do and say to her each night. I wanted to open my eyes and maul her! But I knew if I did that, she would think it was party time. So I laid there, pretending to sleep while she sweetly kissed my cheeks, nose and forehead. I must be doing something right, right?! Seriously need to add that to my list of "Top 5 Sweetest Moments".
I eventually dozed off, as did she. At 6:30, Ken nudged me, telling me Jack was up (I guess I will sleep when I'm dead) which alerted Ava that the day has officially begun.
Lucky guy crawled back into bed while I stayed up and took care of the kids. Not long after getting up, I noticed Ava went up to our room. After not hearing from her for a few minutes, I went upstairs to find this:
|Light switch meet duct tape.|
That was easy.
