I wandered the deep depths of my mind trying to work things out, just the normal day to day. My eyes heavy but not tired enough to give in, still purposely looking around my room for light flickers to break up my thoughts and create pictures in my mind.
I like this time of nothing of stillness and peace. Gentle breathing and that distant street noise, a hum of activity I am so far away from protected from under my bed sheets.
My disturbance was anticipated as if I wait for it every night as if the tiny glows that dance around my room are there on purpose to awaken my senses and stop me from falling into my dreams. I hear your cry before the noise leaves your mouth before the sounds of distress echo around your room. My body tenses and waits for a moment judging the situation as I listen to the muffled sound of your crying. I walk to your room and pick you up, plant several kisses on your forehead before laying you next to me.
I feel your tiny body relax your small toddler hand reaching for a part of me to touch and just like that you sleep again.
The room fills with an eery silence the light shifts and hides in places I can't see, my thoughts disappear and transform into strange shapes and images. I return here every night.
Being a co sleeping mum does not always mean your baby WANTS to co sleep. All of my babies have shared my bed at some point but the older 4 weaned themselves into their own beds very fast much to my heartbreak. 😂 Spencer never enjoyed co sleeping, maybe he needs a break from his twin? 😂 but my little AJ is the cutest little cuddle bug I could ever wake up to. And I swear he knows when his dads is on a night shift because he will yell to be lifted into our bed before I can even close my eyes 😂😍 it makes me sad that when he weans himself from co sleeping that a baby will never cuddle into me all night again 😭😭 so for now I will cuddle my baby and hope he doesn’t grow up too fast. .

Good morning from Nancy & I... we are very excited to be doing the Take over today!
Who needs alarms when you have children ?! Nancy is a bed invader, usually joining us around 5:30-6 🙈😴 Sometimes she will snuggle for an hour or so,but mostly she likes to nip, kick & nipple tweak!
Nancy loves a story before her breakfast & usually has a few random questions for me . This mornings question was.... “do germs live In bums?! “ ( answers on a postcard ?!) 🤷♀️ Go ask your dad darling!
How’s your morning going mama’s?! #goodmorningmama#dreamer#bedinvader#ourmorningroutine#toddlerquotes#scottishmotherscollective#takeoverthursdays#passthecoffee
Face of an angel? Erm...well no actually this is the face of a 3am bed invader! Casually strolling into Mummy and Daddy’s room at 3am and climbing into bed with us like it’s no problem! Since she moved to a “big girls bed” and realised she could get out of it (took her a couple of weeks 🙌🏼) this has been a regular occurrence. Sometimes we put her back, sometimes we don't, but the truth of it is, we actually secretly enjoy it! Ava won’t want to get in and snuggle with us forever, so as much as disturbed sleep at times can be an inconvenience, we need to enjoy the precious moments with our baby, being a baby, before she grows up! 💗
