I tend to avoid delving into my family on this blog but after just rocking Master Christopher (just 1 year old) to sleep I can't resist proclaiming that's one of the greatest things in the world. Sadly that won't last as he is getting so heavy. Of course not every night involves slipping softly off to sleep. Sometimes there is a struggle - takes after his Dad who still tries to squeeze the last drops out of the day (and the night).
Safely rocking a sleepy infant to sleep is a precious experience which sadly some parents of the world can't enjoy. Far too many people live in fear for their lives or simply don't have enough food to go around.
