Waking up next to these two cuties is the best. Saturday night us girls of the family had a sleepover in the guest room. The girls share a room already, so it's only sort of out of the ordinary, but the idea of having a sleepover definitely captured their imaginations. Backpacks were even packed with everything the girls would need. I mean, you really need to be prepared, right?
Having coslept until the age of nine myself, I miss the dynamics of having a family bed. I loved lying next to the girls as they fell asleep (almost instantly: Lily apparently tells stories to herself as she's drifting off), and then ever so carefully sneaked out for some adult evening time after they were solidly out. There is nothing as calming as the rhythmic breathing of your own sleeping children.
