Are kids ever any cuter than that moment after they've fallen asleep and you go to check on them one last time and kiss them softly so as not to wake them? I think not. And it doesn't hurt to have a spoiled pup snuggled in between either.
PS Did your dog sleep in your bed when you were a kid? (Guilty!) Do you let your dog sleep with your kids? (Obviously I do, but Clay is sort of horrified!)
PPS Siblings sharing rooms: yay or nay? Sam and Viv love it. It definitely takes them longer to fall asleep (so much giggling!) and almost every night I find them curled up in the same bed even though we have a bunk bed. I know it won't last forever, but for now it warms my heart:)
