The ideal life: where every child sleeps in their own bed and mummy gets the big bed with daddy all by ourselves!
Large family reality: as long as the children sleep than I am happy.
Meet Malachi! Malachi is 18 months old, number 6 in our family and he is so independent and so active until bed times. Bed times is when I am reminded of how young he still is. It's easier to forget in our family as my children seemingly grow independent quite early.
There's a beauty in knowing that your toddler still needs his mummy and daddy cuddles to sleep. Malachi struggles to sleep without knowing a person is right next to him. Ideally that person would be mummy. Sometimes (rarely) I feel frustrated that my bed is not my bed but I quickly remember when my now 12 year old used to like to sleep with mummy, it feels just like yesterday. Time goes past so fast, enjoy the blessings you are given and cherish each moment of their life. I honestly love baby/toddler stage and it doesn't last long so for now I watch my Malachi happily and peacefully napping with mummy 💙
