Okay so parenting confession number three. In the month that my husband works away, I let my boys sleep in the bed with me. All four of us plus a couple of dogs all pour on in and some nights its good others not so much and I wake looking like a pretzel. We have a king bed so at the moment there is enough room.
I never used to allow it, the boys HAD to be in their own bed. Then sometime last year my body told me it was on a gradual down hill side from tiredness. Now they don’t wake, they sleep, I sleep and everyone is happy.
The confession: I like it, I like them being near. It’s not going to be this way for ever. So enjoy it while it last I think. What do I do when my husband is home? Well, they all sleep in their own room and they go there with no problem. They do however share a bed. A double. They all have beds of their own and use to sleep separately but when B1 started prep this year they just wanted to be together. I know that won’t last forever either so why stress about it. What do you think?
