Simple Pleasures

The theme this week, as set by Tara over at Sticky Fingers, is Simple Pleasures. "What are yours? Walking, cuddling up on the sofa, time alone, gardening, curled up with a good book, walking the dog? Give us an insight into the simple pleasures which make your day."

Something popped into my head straight away, but I dismissed it and tried to come up with some other options. I could have chosen reading with a book and chocolate (too corny) or a picture of the laptop (too telling), but each time I kept coming back to the same image and memory in my head.

My simple pleasure is this:

Having a cwtch with my son and staring at his beautiful baby face.

I don't care how soppy or predictable it is, there is nothing I enjoy more. Every Tuesday when I take him upstairs for his nap, I fail to put him in his cot and leave him sleeping in my arms. Why Tuesdays I hear you ask? The reason is simple: on a Wednesday, Thursday and Friday I work so my mum puts him down for his nap. On the weekend, hubby does it. So I only get to do it on a Monday and Tuesday, and on a Tuesday I spend the entire time memorising his beautiful face and inwardly sobbing about the fact that I have to work for the next three days.

I won't be able to do this forever, I dare say he'll protest when he's 15. Until then having a little cwtch with my gorgeous child is my simple pleasure.

    Lovely photo. I love looking back at photos of my son sleeping when he was little. I'm happy to report that at the age of 11, he still loves a cuddle (but only when his friends aren't watching, obviously!). x

    awwwww, so cute. I love watching the kids sleep…even now they are 'bigger' they are still my babies and I'm still just as in awe with them as I was as when they were babba's x

    I have so many photos of Dylan like this (weird, don't remember him sleeping so much :P), and it just never gets boring to sit and watch them.
    *soppy sigh!*
