Goodnight Kisses

Image


Last night was the first night that I wasn't able to say good night to Charlotte before she went to bed. I was stuck at the stupid gym *sad face*. 


I have this thing where I don't want to miss kissing my girls good night when they go off to bed. I know some might think it's silly, but I always want them to go to bed, closing their gorgeous little eyes knowing that their Mummy loves them. 


When I got home and saw that she was in bed {I already knew she would of been, so I was preparing myself} I was a bit sad. Thankfully, I was able to get some cuddles off Bella cause she was still awake.


I quickly jumped in the shower so I would be able to spend some time with Bella before she went to bed. When in the shower I couldn't stop thinking about missing Charlotte's bed time and the good night kiss... I cried....


I found it so hard when I was in hospital having Charlotte when I couldn't be there to give Bella her good night kiss. I just cry thinking about it.


I know that as they get older they will be off at school camps, sleep overs etc. I know I wont cope. I know I will be the Mummy that insists their friends have sleep overs at our house just so I don't miss the goodnight kiss and school camps... well they just can't go. 


Do you also hate missing goodnight kiss time?

Nope no problems from me with this. My mum generally puts Zoe to bed for me while I deal with Grace - so I don't generally get a goodnight kiss from her at all, since she is very stubborn and will only kiss the person that puts her to bed - everyone else gets told a big fat no!

Also Mat takes Zoe every second weekend so I am used to not been there all the time.

It gets easier with time I promise. I do get what you mean though. Even if I am not there to tuck them in, I love to tip toe into their room when I get back. I whisper them lots of loving words, I hope they hear them in their dreams....

I'm like you Leesa! I have to have big kisses and cuddles, and if I know that I'm not going to be there for bedtime, I make sure that I give them both big kisses and cuddles and tell them to sleep well and that Mummy will be back later so they know. I always then go and check on them and watch them sleep for a bit when I do get home too (even if Damo has already done it - I can't help myself).

I think it would be very different if I was a single parent or if I had shared custody, but given I've never had a night away from Ashleigh, and the only time I had away from Liam was when I was in Hospital giving birth to Ashleigh, and then when Ashleigh and I moved back to Canberra before Damo and Liam did, I really don't like missing out on those moments if I don't have to. They're too precious!
