Closeness

Several months ago, Tom and I bought the kids a very unique bunkbed system which sleeeps four (it is shaped like an "L", with two top bunks and a double bed on the bottom). Tonight Ben, who has claim to the lower level, asked if Tom and I would lay with him. At first, it was Tom and I and Ben in the double bed. Then Liam, who normally sleeps perpendicular to us, on the top level, asked if he could snuggle on my other side for a while. Then Lily decided she too would like to join in. And there we were, five of six Sombar folks in one seemingly tiny bed- on purpose. A lot of my anxiety from the weekend began to dissipate in this chaos- believe it or not- because for the first time in a couple of days, I was sure, as nutty as it was, that my children's needs (those of being close to us), were being met. Simple but true.

Good Night everyone. Sleep tight.
