No one wants to die in the forest!! Kids have a way with words.

Having a family bed. I wouldn't have it any other way.

After having a wonderful playdate Friday night with new friends I came home feeling so blessed.  I was able to enjoy the company of another mom who is like me in many ways.  We sleep with our kids.  We let or baby suck on our boob at 2 1/2.  We just enjoy our kids because we know it will not last forever.

I came home, changed into my pj's and jumped into my comfy queen size bed and snuggled with Baby M to get some sleep for the night.  I've blogged several times about having a family bed and have gotten mixed opinions.  I suppose it's not for everyone and they have their own excuse as to why.  BUT IMPO I wouldn't have it any other way.  It is such a tremendous joy sharing your bed with your babies.  They are only babies for such a short time so why wouldn't we want to share in this special bonding time with them?

Here are a few random pictures of our family bed.

1 ~ Getting ready for bed.  Notice the rail on the side so Baby M doesn't fall into the floor.  Actually she wouldn't fall into the floor.  She'd fall on top of Lil O because her bed is pushed up beside ours.
2 ~ Sometimes there are four in our bed!  Crowded but LOVE IT!!!
3 ~ I wouldn't have it any other way.

Does a family bed mean the kids never, ever sleep anywhere else?

Oh no. My two oldest adjusted well to their big boy/big girl bedrooms. I know the time will come when Lil O and Baby M want their own bedroom and I cannot wait to girly-fy it!!!

you aren't alone. My eldest slept with us until he was 2.5 and my 2.5year old sleeps with us and still nurses (although I am ready for him to ween he definitely is not ready!)

It just seems right for some parents and not for others. We love it!

Conversations with my best friend BG. #thebgs

This will be a random question that will be from a CrAzY conversation with my Beastie Grits.

The first ever question asked since the very small, more work to do, blog change over.

1)  Where do you keep your wine?

My response,

"Above the washing machine as no one else knows how to use such a complex machine."

She said, I picture with her hands on her hips, "Yeah, NO SHIT!  LOL"

Thank you thank you thank you,
