Just go to sleep so I can remember how much I love you

There is something just so angelic, peaceful and definitely rare about our children when they sleep. Don’t you agree? I feel so calm and content just looking at my sleeping baby, lying so blissful in their deep sleep, their minds resting, their bodies still, and the best bit, the quiet house!!

I look at my daughter, my very big three years old, who in just a month is going to be turning four. She drives me crazy with her tantrum-ing. But is truly the most beautiful little girl in the world (to me). She has the spirit or should I say the high pitched scream of a pack of hyenas! The loudest most screech-iest 3 year old I have met to date, and she is mine. All mine! How lucky I am!

When she is screeching at me, or tantrum-ing on me, kicking me, yelling at me, stomping around the house, throwing a fit about how I put her socks on wrong, or how I brushed her hair to hard, I simply have to look at her angelic face when she is sleeping and my heart melts. I can’t put into words the love I have for this little lady, it is an overwhelming feeling in the pit of my belly, in the back of my mind, in all the memories we have shared so far, the warm feeling I have in my chest, when my heart feels like it is going to burst into trillions of tiny love hearts. I can’t! Telling you dear, sleeping Sophia how much I love you would be like trying to breathe under water, impossible. You are my little girl forever and I couldn’t feel more privileged I get to be your mummy, and I will say this always, you are a very special girl, with a big future, you are going to change lives in unimaginable ways, you are you and there is no one like you, making you even more unique, more special, then ever.
