**some days I'm a good housekeeper, some days I am a fun mom**
So once upon a time I was reading some parenting magazine or another and I came across an idea I simply loved, The Family Nest. I tried it once before with painful results. Unless you have a plethora of thick blankets, every single blanket in the house isn't enough to quell the possibility of waking up with a stiff neck and sore back. The idea is to make one night a week or month or whatever into the nest night. Gather up all the blankets in the house (or in our case, my mattress) and put it in the living room so everyone can sleep all snuggled up in your nest. This is how round two of the family nest went.....
First there was the jumping...
Then when I returned from making popcorn, this strange "lump" appeared. I heard a little voice coaxing me to "check on the lump mom!" But when I did....
Cypress had fun too since he was finally tall enough to reach mama's computer.
A future blogger in the making??
We watched a movie and ate popcorn.
We said our good nights...
And went to sleep, finally!
Cypress woke up first,
All smiles as always!
Then he gave Free some sweet kisses to wake him up. Awww!
That's one of those moments that makes a mother's heart melt right there!!
Then Free showed dad how to get into the fun, how cute!
All in all we had a great time. When Free was little he co-slept with John and I but he's all grown up now and Cypress sleeps in his crib about half the night and spends the other half with me. It's nice though to give it a name and a designated day. It makes it a special family event we can all look forward to throughout the week. Thanks for taking the time to check it out.
By the way, if you have a minute stop over to CHILDHOOD MAGIC and check out her giveaway, it's awesome as always!
