These days E4 is still waking up at night to feed and at times he wakes up multiple times at night which makes for a very tired mommy. But then I try to put things into perspective and remember when E1 used to run into our room every single night and my husband would sometimes get a little impatient and wonder when he would stop doing that. And I told him, "Honey, he won't be doing this his whole life, you should enjoy this time when he wants to be with us. There will come a day when he doesn't want to ever sleep with us again and you're going to miss it!"
So now I'm going to enjoy the night feedings even though it makes me very tired the next day because I know these moments of closeness will not be around forever and I will miss them in the future.
Have you taken a break today and just enjoy being with your kids? Go ahead and give them a hug while you're at it!
