Ever since my son can walk and we converted his crib to a day bed he’s been walking into my bed in the middle of the night, every night. It was so endearing at first…it truly was. I was like “look honey he wants to be close to us. How cute!” It was bunch of ooooh’s and ahhhhhhh’s. Now that he’s two and 3 feet tall??? Not so much!
So, we sleep in a California King…which is a pretty large bed. It’s starting to feel a lot smaller now that there’s 3 of us. So, my son will walk in and come to my side of the bed to pick him up and place him in between us. Not only are the middle of the night or morning sex out the window, but my two year old likes to fight in his sleep. So, no sex opportunities plus throughout the night we both get kicked and punched. It’s really not as cute and endearing as I once thought it was.
And then the next question arises from the fiancé….How much sleep do you need? LOL! I love that question, I truly do! The answer??? A-FRIGGIN-LOT! OK? LOL. I have always liked my sleep and guess what? I still do! Especially when I’m spending my days chasing around an emotionally unstable yet super happy two year old. Then top it off with him jumping in the bed not only to sleep but to beat the both of us up every night. So much fun! It really is! Wanna trade sleep situations?
