3am Cuddles

Karly’s been getting up in the middle of the night. We’ve been very lucky until now. She was very young when she first started sleeping through the night, just a week before starting daycare. I only took eight weeks off for my maternity leave, and Karly started attending daycare as soon as I returned to work.

Sometimes I’m tired throughout the day. When Karly cries at night, I take her to the living room and we cuddle on the couch. Even though it’s 3am, sometimes I like having this time with her. I lie down on the couch and wake up with her snuggled on top of me.

Karly is two years old. She’s going to grow up, and these cuddles won’t last. I will appreciate the time I have with her now as a toddler, even if it’s in the middle of the night.
