Have you ever?

I'm hoping I'm not the only one who has ever done this.

When Brody was just a pup, sometimes he'd be so still and quiet when he was sleeping, so I'd poke him and wake him up just to make sure he was still breathing!

So...have you ever?

LOL - I did it just a few days ago - to Augie - and he is over three and a half years old! I had given him a bath and was drying him on my lap. He became as limp and lifeless as an overcooked noodle. I called his name several times and still no movement. Kind of worried me for a second or two. So I jostled him, and he finally lifted his head - he was just incredibly relaxed and had fallen asleep. Sure not the case when he was a pup - he would struggle through the drying part. I have hope that Finn will reach that place; kinda having my doubts at this point.

If my husband is not snoring I have to punch him to see if he is alive.

Well actually Rosie gets up on his chest and puts her nose to his nose to see if he is breathing. True

I've done it to my boys and also my husband. I am the only insomniac in the family.

If my husband sleeps too long I get a little nervous about going to see why?

At this age it could be a lot of reasons besides just sleeping.

Five children and they were all stared at for a while and then given a little tap, just to make sure...I remember that little skip of my heart until they moved. Now it starts all over with these pups, they are very sound sleepers. That maternal instinct is still working!
