This week I’ve been home with sick boys. Luckily Atticus has managed to avoid the fever so far (knock on wood) but Asa and Finley have been out of school all week. I am leaving for a photo convention in Las Vegas tomorrow and have a list a mile long of things to do. I’m talking, LOTS to do. But, on Wednesday afternoon the house was quiet and Asa and Finley asked if they could snuggle up in our bed with me. Now, these guys NEVER nap anymore and it’s a little eery to see them so mellow. I said “sure” and we all nestled in and took a nap together. In Finn’s dreamy sleep he kept hugging me and squeezing my arm. It was the best. I wouldn’t trade it for anything.
So, now I’m packing up for Vegas and have a cold. My chest hurts and my body is aching. Thanks guys.
But, I’ll take it. It was worth it to spend a quiet afternoon snuggling with my growing boys. I mean, really, how many more days like this will I get?
