Beautiful Dreamer - Me watching my little girl sleeping
All the time and it often gets me teary-eyed lol. You never really understand what unconditional love is until you have a child of your own. I watch her sleep and I literally see what my purpose on this earth is, to be her mom.

Mine are teens too and yes I have to admit, I still do watch them sleep from time to time. My oldest will be graduating from high school at the end of the year, so I have to make the most of the time I have left with him living under my roof and that includes mom sneaking peaks of him sleeping so soundly.

I don't hover over them and watch them sleep but I do check in on them and every once in a while they will have such a lovely angelic content look that I do pause and give thanks that I have many blessings to be thankful for (they are all happy, healthy children 4, 7, 16 and 18)

When they were babies, I would watch them sleep for a really long time. But I have seven children, so when they sleep...its kinda nice. ha ha However, one of my children had sleep apnea until last year. I would watch him sleep just to be sure that he would breathe. It got very scarey!!!!
