Last night the fire alarm went off every 10 minutes there was a short in the wiring NO FIRE just a nosiy alarm. Every adult in the house got no sleep and thankfully Teagan slept peacefully through the night oblivous to the blaring alarms. As much as I am so glad my girl got her sleep its those time when I really feel sad. Those alarms are meant to save a persons life and my daughter can't hear them. It gets me thinking about when she will leave the protection of my watchful eye and be on her own. I am sure they have so many products that work just as well as our noisy alarms but it just barely takes the edge of my concern.
She woke up in such a happy mood this morning and reached for me with a huge grin on her face, gave me one of her slobbery kisses and big hugs and disolved all the grumpiness that comes along with a sleepless night.
Its funny when we're kids and we wait for Santa to come and were so excited for the pile of presents under the tree and when we grow up and become mothers we realize that NO gift could be any greater than our children love and the most important thing about Christmas is that huge smile you know you are going to wake up too!
