AT LEAST SHE LISTENS

Bob and I have been having some issues with G's sleeping habits for some time now. She'll go to bed fine for us, but staying in her bed is something else. Every night she creeps into our bed while Bob and I are asleep. If we happen to notice, we are usually too tired to take her back to her own bed. This has been going on for months now, and I finally have had enough. So we have stuck to our guns and taken her back into her room every night, usually a few times b/c just once would be too easy.
When we tuck her in at night we get in her head and tell her to be a big girl and stay in her bed all night, and NOT TO COME UP TO OUR ROOM. She made it through a couple of nights and then this morning I went in her room and she wasn't there. Then I heard little giggles coming from D's room so I opened the door. There was G&D laying in D's bed. Grace said to me, "I don't like my bed, and I'm not allowed in you and Dad's bed anymore, so I came in here to sleep last night."
Whatever, how can I argue with that?

janey does the same thing. At our old house, chloe and janey shared a room w/bunk beds, then while we were staying at my folks house, they had to share a room and a big bed. Now that we have moved into this house where everyone has their own room with all of their stuff in it decorated the way they wanted it, janey insists on sleeping in chloe's bed because she doesn't want to be alone. We keep telling her once school starts she has to go back in her bed. we'll see how that works out!

Too cute, but how does D feel about it?

Maggie has been sleeping in my bed all summer. I do give Grace props for serious problem solving. She's going to be a CEO when she grows up.

i have the cutest pic of my kids sleeping in the same bed... sometimes i think they just need the comfort of someone they love close to them. both of freeman and elaisha have been caught sleeping on the opposite of eachothers bed, not close enough to bother eachother, but close enough to feel safe. i think it's way too cute!
