‘I bet you can’t wait to get them out of your bed!’
Actually I can.
Time passes by too darn quickly watching my babies grow to ever want to live just ‘waiting’ for the future.
I’d rather live in the here and now.
Right now I live in the land of twilight cuddles, nursing, sweet milk breath, tiny hands, kicky legs, sleepy sounds, toddler nightmares, teething pain, cries in the night that I can calm just with my touch, my presence.
My bed is incredibly full right now, although the new addition of a single mattress next to our King has created the space we all needed to feel comfortable.
I didn’t choose bedsharing first time around. My baby chose it and I will be forever grateful to him for forcing my hand.
Second time around, we chose it from the start. Why?
- Because it feels so right for us.
- I get more rest.
- My babies have me promptly when they need me.
- I can be the parent I want to be through the night.
- It’s easy when we travel.
My husband and I will have years of our bed to ourselves.
I can wait for that.
Right now, our family bed is for our family. Always present. Always comforting. Ever loving.
