Sleeping On My Knee

Life is at full speed in a family with 4 children.

Sometimes though it finds a way to make you slow down.

There are precious moments, when no matter how much you have to do, you just cannot do any of it.

I wrote this in March 2015, when child 1 was 19, child 2, 7, child 3, 5 and child 4, 2 and 4 months.

Sleeping On My Knee

I've things to do
I've a house to clean
I can't reach the book I'm planning to read
But my toddler is sleeping on my knee
I could get up
Wriggle and move
But really there's no place I'd rather be
