An afternoon nap

I don’t have many words lately. All is boringly well.

We sleep together.   One of my greatest joys is wrapping myself around baby A at night & cuddling her through the night.  Nighttime is half the time I get to spend with my babies & I would feel so ripped off if those hours we spent apart in separate rooms.  Co-sleeping is what we’ve always done since it was just CJ, A & I, it just came naturally, made life easy & we all enjoyed it.  Nighttime parenting can be full-on & it is much easier to be able to feed, cuddle, take to toilet etc when you know what is needed as soon as bub does.  Once when MC was sick in her bed & went back to sleep I thought about how awful it would feel if she was in another room & I found her in the morning covered in vomit.  I can meet my babies needs straight away.  CJ has recently moved on to a mattress at the foot of our big bed & he says he likes it because no one annoys him down there!  One day my babies will all leave the family bed asking for their own space in their own rooms.  That will be a sad day indeed, but also a celebration of independence.  Until then I will appreciate the extra cuddles & my heart will be happy.
