Tell me your secrets....
I'm going to ask you all a personal question, so feel free to respond anonomously...
I don't know, maybe it was about a year ago, but I read this article, I think in the New York Times, about how many husbands and wives do not sleep together in the same room. It was like some big hidden secret happening all over America.
I thought it was pretty fascinating, because I think the number was extremely high. It turns out that all these couples just got a better night sleep if they didn't sleep in the same room as their partners.
Now, I'm not saying their sex lives suffer because of this (You can always get laid and then move rooms, right?)
I just thought it was pretty interesting how many married couple's didn't actually sleep in the same bed, or the same room.
As a very light sleeper, I can totally relate.
But I'm not talking about husbands and wives not sleeping together, because one is a light sleeper and the other snores or gets out of bed to go to the washroom five hundred times a night.
It's just that, for the past couple weeks, I've been sleeping with The Dictator, in her bed, in her room.
So now I'm wondering how many mother's actually sleep with their children, as opposed to their husbands.
I know why I do it. Well, there are a couple reasons.
First, I'm a working mother. So any time I can get with The Dictator, even if she's asleep, I'll take it.
Second, after I put her to bed, I honestly start missing her about 15 minutes later.
Third, I love when I sneak into her bed at midnight and say, 'I love you,' and give her a kiss on the cheek, and she says in her sleepy voice, "I love you too Mommy. Give me huggies."
So I've become addicted to sleeping with her. I know it has to stop. I know I have to move back into the marital bed soon.
But, tell me, do you love sleeping with your toddlers or babies? Please tell me, I'm not the only one...
