Bed Wars Showdown. The Saga Continues. Maybe.

I have chronicled our Bed Wars Showdown here before. Our previous solution was to park Troy on his crib mattress next to our bed and turn the lights out. This wasn’t really a solution because we are so tired that we fall asleep before him and then he waits until he “can’t see our eyeballs” and merrily climbs into our bed.

We tried to outsmart him. We sold his crib on CList and bought him a big boy bed with a twin mattress. He won’t go near it unless Jeff sleeps in it too. This works well for me because I get the big bed all to myself. This does not work well for Jeff because he had to share a twin bed with Toddler Godzilla.

I love my children very, very much. I just think it is time for everyone to sleep in their own area. It’s possible I would love them more if they are in their own beds, but at this point I can’t say because there is always a child in my bed. We wake up 14 times a night because Troy has his feet in Jeff’s junk and also likes to wind both of his hands in my hair. Zoe is the special guest star that shows up during sweeps, she’s pretty ninja about it, you don’t even know she’s there. By ninja I mean at least she doesn’t kick anyone in the junk.

I have been co-sleeping or bedsharing or whatever the hip hippies are calling it these days for TEN YEARS.

Last night, for the first time, we slept peacefully.

I put Troy in Zoe’s bed and they had a slumber party. They went to sleep and slept all night.

I can’t believe I didn’t think of it sooner.
