Just like now,since I still can't sleep and while i'm still mylotting,from time to time I would peek at my two girls as they sleep and see how they sleep,how they breath,how they move.I am aware now what's their most comfortable sleeping positions.It gives me smile and contentment that I still have the chance to witness all these simple sweet moments with them.I know how times fly so fast,eventually they would want to sleep alone and would not want me to watch them while sleeping hahahha.So I'm making the most of it while I still have the chance.So nice to see them sleep so soundly.

I used to watch my nieces and nephews while they sleep. They look so kind and angelic unlike when they are awake, they go around the house and bump on everything they pass. So when they are asleep, the house is so peaceful. But it's fun watching them awake and playing as well as sleeping..

I hear ya! lol...i used to do that with my girls when they were little. But now I just have to kiss them goodnight every night and that's it. Sometimes I still go back to their room to check them out. I sometimes find them asleep or pretending to be...and sometimes when i tease them I get kicked out of their room. hahaha! I have a mother-big sister-friend relationship with my 2 girls. Time is precious...they grow up so fast :)

hahaha that's it,I love that very ordinary but special moments with them,that that before going to sleep bonding,teasing each other,they would always tease me of something.And they would tell me to massage them and they would do the same with me.but of course it always ended up me massaging them until they fall into sleep and I dont get my turn .Anyways,sometimes they do massage me.We call that bonding MUCHI MUCHI time hhehehe

Oh yes,I used to do that too. hehehe it was really a wonder to be holding such a very tiny,fragile yet angelic infant,monitoring and seeing all those slow movements while they're asleep.And I used to smell that cute yawning they did LOL...ah,all those sweet times while they were infants makes my heart leap.Presently you are at that stage,eventually you would reminisce it too like me hehhe

I can't go to sleep without peaking in on my munchkins. I love to watch how peaceful they are. And sometimes it's downright hilarious the positions they get themselves into. LOL!

Not yet have a child, but i still remember i love to be watched by my parents while I sleep, but not for now. So doing this during kids childhood is good i think.

I don`t have a kid yet... hehe, still very much single. But yes, I really do love looking and watching while a kid is asleep, especially when it`s a baby.. they`re just so angelic and I feel better when I do it.

I love watching babies sleeping. I find it so relaxing.. just as I find watching a fire dance in a fireplace soothes me too. My sons are getting older now, and at 7, 7 and 9 years old, they are far from being babies. But I still do like to have a peek at them sleeping now and then. I check on them quickly every night before I go to bed, and I admit, there are some nights that I stop and stare at them for just a few minutes longer than usual.

It is always lovely to go in and see my children sleeping and if they have been naughty in the day and things have been a bit airiated I always love to go in to them when they are asleep and feel that love for them that makes me forget I was ever cross with them. They always look so innocent and so beautiful.

How beautiful. This is so special and even though I do not have any children I have a small five pound yorkie who is very very funny and I love to listen to her breathing when she sleeps and watch her in her funny sleeping positions. So in this sense I do love to watch my kid sleep. She is only 17 months old and I know her favorite positions. She loves to cuddle too which is very neat. I enjoy watching my partner sleep. I wake in the night and lay silently beside, watching, listening to his breath and feeling his heartbeat.

Watching my daughter sleep is one of the last thing i do before i go to sleep... since that would like relax me because i know she is peacefully resting... she still sleeps with me... and like you... i know the time will come when she would prefer to sleep in her own room and bed... so this is a good time to take advantage of the situation...

oh yeah... looking at my kids when they sleep brings so much joy, seeing them growing up healthy and while sleeping they seem to be soooo angelic... lol... but really it gives us, mothers, so much joy watching our kids sleeping, it also brings back the memories we had when they were still younger... :)

Oh yeah I do. I smile a lot every time I see my daughter sleep. It's like watching an angel sleep. And then it makes you wonder...time does so fly fast. You were just holding her when she was tiny...and now she's sleeping in a big bed.
