If only we know when we were kids how much sleeping would be valued when we become adults.
Imagine if we were given a chance to sleep 12 hours a night do you think we would be waking up at 3am? Then why do our kids wake up? Pretty much like clock work I hear the door open and the patter of little feet come running out of the room wanting to jump into our bed. Ok I know we have a king-sized bed but you add two adults, one 2 year-old and of course an extra pillow, a stuffed animal or two and an extra blanket the bed gets rather cramped – aaah…why don’t you want a bed to yourself.
And there you have it my nightly stare downs with my 2 year old in a dark hallway. Me asking her why she is awake and her ignoring the question and pointing towards my bedroom door. So after 10 minutes of back and forth I decide it will be easier to let her crash on our bed then not sleep. Even after that somehow I seem to end up on the edge when my daughter takes up my whole side. Ahhhh…the sleeping joys of a parent.
