I miss sleeping with him too. And then, I don't. My cracked ribs are finally starting to heal.

btw, I'm planning a two-part post on the bed from my perspective.

I both giggled and sighed with melancholy reading this. Your baby is growing up. Luckily you have another on the way. My youngest is showing signs of wanting to move to a bed, but I'm in no hurry. I asked her very seriously the other day if she wouldn't mind stopping growing for awhile so she can stay my baby for awhile longer. She just gave me the look and went back to her play. I had tears in my eyes, I'm sure.

Bread through a keyhole, indeed! You have a wonderful way with words! Keep it up : )

I guess I tend to enjoy the present situation, rather than longing for the past. My daughter is almost 14 and I actually *like* it (mostly).

At least she doesn't poop her pants any more. I don't miss THAT part of having a baby.

how old is your son? mine was two in february, and we are desperately trying to get him to stay in his own bed, which is not working very well...

He's almost three.

My hubby actually slept the whole night with our son for a week to get him used to the new environment. Now, if he wakes up in the middle of the night, I sing him about 400 rounds of "Rock-a-bye baby" -- his favorite.

I don't have any advice, really, except to hang in there. Good luck.

  • It is good to be the Empress
    ... but, y'know, it's kinda hectic. I blog when I can. Right now, my day's divided this way: keep kids from screaming (8 hrs); keep son from killing daughter (6 hrs); avoid diet (4 hrs); sleep (2 hrs); lay awake fretting (2 hrs); give up and Web surf for a while (1 hr); think about waking hubby for sex (1/2 hr); ponder my career options (15 mins); shudder, begin blog post (15 mins); resume efforts to keep kids from screaming ...
