Hello!

I had to share. Last night I put my daughter to bed at the usual time – 7pm. Gave her a hug, a kiss and whispered “good night and I love you” and tucked her into bed. I then went and got myself a cup of tea and assumed that she would go to sleep as per usual. At around 8:30pm, I needed to go to the bathroom and walked past the bedroom door, only to hear movement. Poked my head in and my little girl was wide away and so, so, so not asleep! I told her that it is time to sleep, school in the morning etc. etc…

A little while later, I had to go to the computer room and could still hear movement. I didn’t look in this time, just said “go to sleep!” in my stern mummy voice. Finally, hearing no movement or a little voice, she had settled down to sleep.

It wasn’t until I went to bed at around 10:30pm that I found what she had been up to. A piece of cardboard she had used as a canvas. Some stickers and pen, and there was a little master piece with “I Love Mummy” with big hugs and kisses (xxooxx) and love hearts and drawings and smiley faces…

She had left this beautiful treasure on the bedside table where I would find it – and yes, she was fast asleep with a smile on her beautiful face. I went to bed laughing and crying at the picture and the beautiful soul my daughter is, has been and always will be.

Love you to the moon and back, my girl. xox

  • Awww cute. I put my son to bed and the first time he said “nigh nigh, love you” melted me I wanted more cuddles. We have a signal for I love you” that even at 12 my daughter still uses and at the start it was just a little gesture that turned out to mean something special.
