As I approached her bed my eyes adjusted, she was lying side ways, her head face up amongst her pile of friends that sleep with her; Stripey,
Rosie, Boofle, Teddy, Cow, Tiger. All of them had been lined up at bed time for a roll call and each patted and said "na nigh" to.
I wondered if I should swivel her around so her head was on her pillow.
"Just let her be" I decided. She looked so peaceful.
I whispered my love to her in the cool air, my only child, tonight things would change forever.
As I walked out I took another look at my sweet baby girl and my heart grew. I knew we'd be okay and I knew that even though I wasn't in labour yet, come morning time my baby girl would be a big Sister.
I stood in the hallway glad for the day we had together, one filled with snow, first time huts, endless pretend cups of tea, a constant stream of books, and a visit to MrMoos work.
Thank you God
