My Magic Moment for this week is a nightly moment, a moment I treasure and one I would love to capture in a photograph but I’m always too worried about disturbing the moment.
My son is very good at going to bed, we brush his teeth, have a wash or bath and he picks his bedtime stories (there are always at least 2 books each night) and then I tell him his Monkey Story, give him and teddy a kiss goodnight and leave him to drift off to sleep.
He likes me to leave his door ajar, so I normally leave him for half-hour and then pop upstairs and shut his door, before Brewster sets up camp for the night.
I love looking at my little boy in dreamtime. Fast asleep, arms tightly wrapped around his beloved teddy, sometimes curled up tightly in a ball, sometimes spread out on top of his duvet, sometimes legs hanging out all over the place, sometimes upside down. I could stare at him for hours like that. So peaceful and quiet, so still.
I look at him and wonder where his mind has taken him, what adventures he is having in dreamland.
