It is simply AMAZING to me the calming effect that overcomes me when I hear the breathing pattern change. You know...when you're standing outside your child's room waiting for the sandman to come. I can hear her looking through the book, talking to herself, then I hear her put the book down, reposition herself, and suddenly...there it is....that moment where she drifts off to sleep. Suddenly the pattern of her breathing is so soothing. Sometimes, the half crazy mama in me creeps in and sits next to her just to soak in the calm in the room. I have even been known to climb into bed with her (which is quite an amusing sight since she is still in a toddler bed) just to listen, to watch, to relax.
Is it just me? Do you love to listen and watch your child sleep? Does it have the calming effect over you?
However, I also LOVE the laughter, silliness, constant questioning, sassiness, etc. that comes when my girl is AWAKE:).
While driving in the car:
Emma...."You call DADDY honey...you call ME sweetie".
Geez! I DO need to get my nick names straight! I can always count on Em to keep me in line:).
Have a Happy weekend!!!
