This Moment : Co-sleeping 'Ingalls Style'

{this moment} - Inspired by Soulemama A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

If you're inspired to do the same, leave a link to your 'moment' in the comments for all to find and see.




C and K cuddling in their bed a few nights ago. If you read Laura Ingalls Wilder's books you may remember that Laura and Mary shared a bed together, which inspired my girls to want the same.

That is just the sweetest photo. My littlest boy, 4, loves to sleep with his 6 year old brother, and does so frequently...

Our moment is here:

Aw, that is absolutely beautiful, thank you for sharing! My siblings and I never officially co-slept, but often found our way to each other's beds at night, sometimes all three of us in a twin bed. We're still very close :)

So sweet! We are loving Laura's adventures very much these days. If only my little guy had a sibling to share his bed with now that he's out of ours... ;-)

Thank you for stopping by everyone! Don't you love her books?!
C was still sleeping with us until about a month before L was born. We moved her in with K and they love sharing their bed.
