Will my children ever be "too old" for me to peek in on them as they sleep? Will there come a time when I won't sneak in late at night to breath in their innocent slumber? Will I stop feeling the need to re-tuck their blankies around their soft little bodies?
Is there a number? An age? A school year? Will they tell me? Will they catch me tip-toeing in and tell me to stop? Will they stay my hand from fixing their blankies?
The nights before each of my children leave home for college, will I still be able to peek in on them then? The night before their weddings? Late at night, as their own newborns grumble and coo in bassinets beside them? Can I still push the door open and sneak in for one last peek?
