I've been lucky; for the most part my kids like to sleep. Or, maybe I should say they don't mind going to sleep, they sleep well, and wake 11 or so hours after being put to bed (sometimes their wake-up time does not coincide with my internal clock). That said, look at this sleeping angel.
I am guilty of checking on my kids multiple times during naps and evenings before I retire. I snuggle my nose right between their jawbone and shoulder and breathe them in, I cover them with kisses and whisper "I love you" in their ears.
Here is my boy resting with his side kick, Kola Dog this afternoon.
