Lesson #29: No passing up snuggles

This is part of the 31 for 21 Blog Challenge!

How did we arrive at Day 29 of this challenge already?! Unbelievable. This has probably been one of our busiest months yet. And here we are at Day 29. You are going to have to forgive my short post tonight. I have no excuse except for this:


These days, when we’re running like crazy and the girls are stretching their independent streaks, I cannot pass up snuggles.

At 6:15, Ellie snuck up into my lap with FOUR books. How can you resist a little lady peeking up through mile-long eyelashes, begging you to read “just one more, please?”

After Ellie went down, the other munchkin was ready for her chance at some lap time. Once I wrestled her meds into her (eye drops in this squirmy worm… Yeah right. Anyone who says people with Down syndrome don’t get angry should watch this fabulous¬†spectacle), she settled in for a snooze.

I do not make a habit of holding my children while they fall asleep. It’s not how we roll. But, on rare occasion, it is kind of lovely.
