at peace, asleep

I realize I’ve been posting a lot of pictures lately, but I had to post this one, even though the photo quality isn’t that great since I took the picture with my phone.

On Saturday night, I developed the vapors and took to my bed. The Potato decided to come and keep me company, and when it was time for him to go to bed, he said, “Mom, can I just go get changed into my pajamas and brush my teeth and then come back in here with you?”

Of course, I said yes.

And here he is, asleep next to me.

The thing I love about this picture is that the curve of his cheek makes him look like he did when he was a baby. He’s become such a big boy now, but when he’s sleeping, I can still remember what it was like to have a newborn Potato in the bed.

    SC, at 15, still looks very much like SC at 2 when asleep. Makes me smile and sigh every time I see it!

    There’s something so evocative about the curve of a child’s cheek. I’ve had the same sensation looking at my own kids, and I have to try and resist waking them up with hugs!
