Home >> About Edison >> My Sleeping Child

Every night after Little Edison is asleep; I will sit on his bed and watch him sleep in the dark. I love the peacefulness of a sleeping child. So quiet and natural. Sometimes, I will cover him with my blanket, snuggle next to him and we go to sleep together.

I will scruff up his hair, touch his soft and chubby cheeks, kiss his fingers, smell his hair and whisper “Mommy loves you” in his ears. But of course, I don’t want to wake him up. I just sit, watch and admire him. It’s certainly one of the most beautiful moments of being a mother.

No matter how bad is my day, just a short moment of watching him sleep instantly brings me into a new perspective – refreshed and recharged. I will cherish every moment with Little Edison while he is still young. He is such a bright and loving boy, I’m so blessed to have him in my life.
