one big bed



Last night was the first night we all were able to sleep in one room. Granted, it would be nice if big M would sleep in his own room all night, but hes always had a hard time sleeping, and since little em was born he and daddy slept in the living room, on the pull-out. We all got lots of sleep, but sorta missed each other. So last night we made a bed for big M on the floor beside ours and little em, me and the dad all crammed on the queen bed. Actually, we slept more than I anticipated, and it was so nice to be all together again.

At the Le Leche League meeting, the husband of our leader and I had a couple words. He told me how, even though, at the time it was difficult, he now misses waking up and watching his son and wife sleeping beside him. He said it with tears in his eyes.It kind of hit home with me, and I know these days of a full bed are to be savored. When my huge boys tower over me, and I am throwing food at them as teenagers, I can remember these nights, when we all slept together, enjoying the quiet sound of eachother's breathing.

we have a bed on the floor too. Usually the baby and I sleep there and A and daddy sleep on the big bed. Often A gets moved into her own room and I sleep on the big bed when not nursing. It's musical beds and sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. But I can't help thinking it's less disturbing to have everyone close by than having to run accross the house to respond to crying.
I have a hunch there are more people co-sleeping around here than we think - everyone's just so hush hush about it. curious that.

that's so sweet. it's amazing that you got some sleep! i've found that i am quite particular about my sleep positions and need a LOT of space. in fact, i like having the whole queen size bed to myself. fiona sleeps on a single mattress on the floor beside my bed and i just roll up and roll down through the night. chris sleeps in the living room. actually i gently kicked him out there back when diego was a baby because i found myself all paranoid about waking him up and wanting to keep things quiet and dark for chris through the night. now i can turn on lights and make as much noise as i (or fiona) want. it's interesting how we all have our own unique sleeping ways.
