To love my DS most of all

When he is fast asleep and I can look at his perfect little face on his monitor?

I love him all day long but he does not stop from the minute he wakes (6am) to the minute he goes to bed.

And whilst he is funny, engaging, cute and great company, when he is fast asleep I can admire him via monitor whilst drinking wine and MNetting or reading the papers. smile

Is it U to like it when he is asleep? It's just the most relaxing part of my day. Sometimes I look forward to it blush

Perfectly reasonable.

You have got through another (testing) day. But looking forward to another lovely day tomorrow when the sun comes out and all is well with the world

YANBU. I have a lovely photo of my 3 all asleep together in one bed. They get on last nerve when they are awake but if I look at that photo it reminds me how much I love them !

He's faar less trouble when he's snuggled up snoozing with his penguin

My son is at his most beautiful when he is asleep. He is non stop all day and when he's finally asleep I get to stare lovingly at him without being told to pretend to be a T. rex, or jumped on or screeched at. It's great.

Last week when I was off to work and DH was on leave with the DC, I popped in to check on the DC before I left.
DD was a mass of hair grin (she's 11)

DS (13) has the most beautiful, high cheekboned, smooth face (apart from the bumfluff 'tasche) . It's so nice to look at him without his teen arsiness shyness making him scowl.

It's nice to see them relax and think they haven't got a care in the world (I hope) but at 13 I can't read his thoughts sad

Aw of coarse! Dd is 8 and we have a strained relationship (pnd issues that didn't really go) but when she falls asleep on the sofa and her hair gets mussed and she goes her weird red colour and sweaty looking and her cheeks go all chubby she reminds me of when she was just a baby/toddler i love it so much smile

Ds is insane but i love when he's tired and falling asleep sitting up it's adorable!

Wee sweethearts aaw!

DS looks like an angel asleep

But sometimes I feel a bit guilty, as if I like the idea of DS more than the reality. It's not the case but after throwing 2 meals at me, refusing to sit down in the bath and having a huge tantrum because I won't let him play with batteries hmm, when he is asleep I can focus on how lovely he actually is grin

Christ i made dd sound shocking - she doesn't look nearly as bad as that sounds i promise!! blush

hermioneweasley Sat 13-Apr-13 20:36:17

Nope, I love my kids waaaay more when they're asleep

catgirl1976 Sat 13-Apr-13 20:37:50

DS is 17 months btw grin I realise that behaviour might sound a little OTT for a teenager

Or maybe not..........they probably don't change that much grin

catgirl1976 Sat 13-Apr-13 20:38:37

She sounds delicious onefinger smile

ChippingInLovesSpring Sat 13-Apr-13 20:39:11

I thought this was 'normal' grin They all look more adorable when they are sleeping and not doing your head in smile

I sneaked a photo of my 8yo dd sleeping with my DH as I went out to work the other morning - they are both so gorgeous when sound! Also much quieter, less irritating etc.

Haven't seen dd1 asleep for a while, she's 13 though and getting to the stage where she's just gorgeous all the time and she can sit still with her phone for long periods anyway though.

OneFingerSjupesUpTheYoni Sat 13-Apr-13 21:20:15

She is catgirl she really is smile ds is also 17 months and obsessed with batteries and wires and tools it's a great age though grin

Ooh I know what you mean catgirl, about liking the idea of my dd more than the reality sometimes.

I look at photos of her or her lovely chubby face when she's sleeping and think how adorable she is. I conveniently forget how she whacked me in the face earlier or cried for ages because I wouldn't let her paint the cat hmm

She's 2 btw. Don't feel guilty!

DonDrapersAltrEgoBigglesDraper Sat 13-Apr-13 21:38:06

I go in and out of the kids's bedroom in the evening just to watch them sleeping, because they're just at their most delicious then.

YANBU. smile

I can forgive my 2 DS (3yo & 6mo) anything when they're angelically sleeping!

PoppyWearer Sat 13-Apr-13 21:39:21

<glares at sleep-refusing 19mo DS>

pamelat Sat 13-Apr-13 21:41:20

Oh not unreasonable!!!
I love my children all the time but definately most when they're asleep!!!

Meglet Sat 13-Apr-13 21:43:25

yanbu. I have to resist squidging them and waking them up.

Theicingontop Sat 13-Apr-13 21:46:23

If you are then I am, but probably not for the same reasons.

My DS is 2.5 and I still go into his room and look at him every night before I go to bed cos he is at his most beautiful then. He is beautiful all the time (smug) but he has these long eyelashes lying on his chubby link cheeks and his blonde curls all messed up and he just makes my heart hurt. It makes up for him waking me up at 6am by banging on my bedroom door and shouting "WAKE UP!" or having a paddy cos I won't let him have nutella toast for breakfast every day or because I won't let him go out in the garden in the rain without any shoes on. Yeah I love it when he's asleep.....

TheFallenNinja Sat 13-Apr-13 22:01:59

Definitely asleep smile as DD is only 6 months she's a bit of a one trick pony really, after bouncing, rolling over and gurgling. The day starts to drag.

catgirl1976 Sat 13-Apr-13 22:30:57

All these DCs sound fab smile

(especially when they are asleep of course)

Funny things is by about 6pm I am thinking "Ahhh....I can't wait till you are asleep then I can relax", by 8pm I am thinking "Ahh...I am relaxing" and by 8:15pm I am really missing him and wishing I could fit in his cot and snuggle up grin
