#Magic Moments – a sleeping Monkey

My Magic Moment for this week is a nightly moment, a moment I treasure and one I would love to capture in a photograph but I’m always to worried about disturbing the moment.

Monkey is very good at going to bed, we brush his teeth, have a wash or bath and he picks his bedtime stories (there are always at least 2 books each night) and then I tell him his Monkey Story, give him and teddy a kiss goodnight and leave him to drift off to sleep.

He likes me to leave his door ajar, so I normally leave him for half hour and then pop upstairs and shut his door, before Brewster sets up came for the night.

I love looking at my little boy in dreamtime.  Fast asleep, arms tightly wrapped around his beloved teddy, sometimes curled up tightly in a ball, sometimes spread out on top of his duvet, sometimes legs hanging out all over the place, sometimes upside down.  I could stare at him for hours like that.  So peaceful and quiet, so still.

I look at him and wonder where his mind has taken him, what adventures he is having in dreamland.

    I used to be too scared to go into the bedroom till the boy was about 4. Then someone said that you do realise he is yours! and It got me thinking so now I go in and kiss him, talk to him and watch him. sometimes he talks to me! But he looks so peaceful 🙂 If I’ve had a bad day it makes me smile…

  7. Such a lovely post – it’s great doing this. I really enjoy watching POD too, have tried taking a photo and it’s not the same. It has to be a moment I think 🙂

  8. I whole heartedly agree with you. One of my favorite past times is to watch my boys sleep. They look so beautiful and peaceful. Any stresses that day are forgotten. I always go in before i go to bed at night and kiss them both and tell them I love them. Sometimes Wriggles say love you mummy back to me on his sleep. Perfect!
    I have many photos of my boys sleeping at night, but youre right, none of them capture the feelings of the moment xx #magicmoments
