would it be so bad if they wanted you to? :)
Am I the only one who knew it wouldn't work out? J is 12 and still wants me to sleep with him. His elementary school is located within a university campus and he's already said that he wants to go there so he can keep living with me (and presumably sleeping with me whenever allowed).
Keep in mind as I give this advice that my children are asleep in MY bed right now, BUT - Theresa's basket reward system worked wonders back in the day when my kids transitioned to thier own beds. Go to sleep in your own bed (I think T's thing was "stay in your bed all night" but that was way to ambitious for us), and there will be a surprise in the basket in the morning.
Antone will stay in bed all night...as long as I am laying down with him when he falls asleep. He pats his pillow every night for me to lay down with him. We actually didn't co-sleep when he first came home, but about a year ago September he started needing us to lay with him (and since a lot of your readers are adoptive parents, I know you will understand its definitely a need, not a want). Right now he doesn't want me out of his sight...happens every fall when we transition from summer vacation back into a regular schedule. Hugs to your family and know that its okay to take a few steps back if that is what they need.
Thanks Kate. Meazi slept one night in her new bed. Melese zero nights. It's all good. Think of you guys all the time. xoxo.
I see nothing wrong with you and Slo being the RAs at M&Ms colleges. That's my future plan anyways.
The hand holding is killing me. Love that.We also recently had a foray into the land of "I want to sleep in my own bed all night." Ours ended similarly, but honestly, I wasn't ready yet either. I'm just going to go ahead and figure out if we can homeschool for college.
my son moved out of the fam bed around 10, or 12...
Can't stand it. Holding hands, amazing.
that is a beautiful photo. keep it always. show it to your grandchildren, who presumably will be sleeping in their own beds. (or not). ;)
oh, but they look SO adorable! Especially with the hats.

My friend jokes that Eli will never miss curfew because he'll want to make sure he doesn't miss out on going to bed with us. :) I'm pretty sure he'll ask us to go to college with him so we can all sleep together. One thing I do know - I'll miss it when he doesn't sleep with us anymore.
