At some point in time all three of my children have slept with us.
OH THE HORROR, A BABY SLEEPING IN THEIR PARENTS BED!!
If your one of the ones who thinks your SO much better of a parent because your bed was YOUR bed and no one ELSE'S bed, well God bless you.
Me I would much rather snuggle with my babies falling asleep and listen to them breathe in the middle of night and of course get smacked in the face, throat, and stomach through out the night, just because.....well it's fun.
Hannah being the LAST baby that Mr. Johnson and I have brought into this world, she has slept with us the longest. She has been sleeping in her bed with no problems since she was about 3. She would still sneak in in the middle of the night and we wouldn't even feel her (sneaky little squirt) I would wake up in the morning with a mouth full of blond sunshine in my mouth. I swear that girls hair is EVERYWHERE when she sleeps.
Recently if Brian is up working late or just because I am to lazy to get up after stories and tuck her in, Hannah has been sleeping with us.
"Mom", she asks. "Why are things so much scary in the dark?"
"Well probably because you can't see and not seeing whats coming is kind of scary." I said.
"So why when I'm in your bed, I'm not scared of what I can't see?" she says.
"Because you think that me and your father will save you from what you don't see." I say
"What?" she says, looking just as confused as I was.
"Your afraid of the dark and you think sleeping with me makes you safer, RIGHT?"
"I'm not afraid of the dark, just the really BAD dark!" she says.
"Hannah are you asking if you can sleep with us tonight?"
Yes mom that sounds good and don't worry I will protect you from what you can't see when your old!"
Thanks babe, that's just what I wanted to hear.GOOD NIGHT......
