One of my favorite things
For the most part my girls never sleep in my bed. They like their beds, their special blankets and the stuffed animals that they sleep with. But, one thing that always brings them running is bad weather. Last night before bed we had started getting some gentle breezes, but the kids looked at that with a weary eye. Will it blow our house down? they wanted to know. Kevin told them no, if it is this old and hasn't blown down yet it probably never will. I think that made them feel a little better. But, when they went to bed they were in their own beds and when I checked on them about an hour later they were in one bed, snuggled together. By this time the wind had picked up and the windows were being shaken by some pretty big gusts. At 3 am I woke up to major house shaking wind. I just laid there waiting for what is probably my favorite question . Sure enough it wasn't long after that that I heard little feet running my way. 'Mama, are you awake? Can I sleep with you?' I love it when we have bad weather!
