Family * Travel * Food

WTH Wednesday

I just had to get this one out... If you know me then you know that I DON'T believe in co-sleeping or the "family bed" as I have heard it. I feel like it is especially unhealthy for your marriage and downright dangerous. Of course that is strictly my opinion and if you like sleeping in the same bed with your kid then good for you. Last night Dwayne brought the boy in our bed because he woke up because we were having a really bad thunderstorm. Normally he can only get in our bed if he is sick and having trouble breathing or he has a fever. Last night he kicked and squirmed and fought like mad. I personally like my face and ribs to be untouched while I'm sleeping. I have no idea how people do it. I really don't. It makes no sense that we have a king-sized bed and both Dwayne and I are stuck at he ends because William thinks he needs his head touching me and his feet touching his dad. He better get back in his OWN room, in his OWN bed. The end.

  1. I'm with you, lady! I do not like co-sleeping. I don't sleep well as it is because I'm worried about the kids. How am I supposed to sleep if I have the kid kicking me all night AND I'm nervous I'm going to smush him/her? It's not for me.

    Plus, like you said, our bed is a "grown-up bed" where grown-up things happen. How are you letting grown-up things happen with a baby between you? No, thank you. See you in the morning, kids! LOL

  2. I don't blame you! Your bed should be your bed. :)

  3. Nights like that seriously suck.

  4. We use to sleep with our kids in the same bed, but once they got old enough to kick the crap out of me, we put them in their own beds. Nae was great about it, she hardly ever came back in once we transitioned her to her bed and room, Zilla on the other hand was completely different! That kid is a damn ninja! I'll wake up at like 4 and the kids is in our bed and I don't even remember him getting in there. Little brat! ;o)

    I hope you get sleep tonight without the rib kicking and face smashing.

  5. I do not co-sleep. If he just so happen to wander in there. I politely walk him back to his bed and place him there. He kicks, punches, bucks and everything else. He is too wild.

  6. I'm with you on this one completely. I do not understand how people do this. I tried bringing Jaimen into my bed once, because I wanted to cuddle, ha! I couldn't sleep a wink!

  7. Every morning, around 3am the twins start screaming at the top of their lungs. Why? Because I created two monsters. I let them both sleep with us when they came home from the hospital, and now it's come back to bite me in the butt, and I have the bruises to prove it.

    Hugs and Mocha,

  8. yeah, we dont do it either, because once you create that dependency its too hard too wean then off. I mean, who would wanna go back to their own bedroom/bed after getting to sleep with mommy and daddy? Im having a hard enough time transitioning chase OFF the paci and OFF the bottle. i dont need one more thing to have to wean him off.

    lol @ head touching dad, feet touching mom. (that image is too cute!)

  9. oops!
