Co-Sleeping Blues - YUMMommy

Co-Sleeping Blues

I've talked about the fact that I write a journal for Moo.  I want her to know what her childhood was like and also I share advice and important events in history with her.  Well, I've been debating whether or not to share entries I write on my blog.   I decided what the heck, I've shared more personal stuff before so this is nothing new.  Enjoy. 


Dear Moo,

As I write this you are sleeping.  You're not quite sound asleep because you keep rolling.  Plus, the slightest move I make causes you to stir.  Not sure if this is your way of signaling that you're ready for a Big Girl bed.  However, I do know that I've enjoyed these last two years of co-sleeping.

While some people think it's a handicap, I can say that is has been a great bonding experience.  It's been a much needed comfort for me.  I try to cherish small moments like these because you'll be bigger and older before I know it.  Then you might think you're too cool for slumber parties with Mom.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that you won't though.  Anyways, know that I love you  so very much and you'll always be welcome to have a slumber party with me no matter how old, big and cool you get!

I love you Moo,
Mommy

  2. @Kenya-Soon I'll be co-sleeping with a toddler and a newborn. I told the hubby we'll co-sleep until age 3, but I do think that Moo is ready for her own bed in our room. We'll see though.

  5. That's great! I had to give up co-sleeping with my oldest because of the new baby. This should be a letter you put the baby book.

  6. I love co-sleeping! I cherish it for the same reasons - Someday my son won't want to hug me, let alone sleep in bed with me. It's so sad to think about - Good thing it happens slowly and gradually. :)

  7. Thanks for the comments ladies. @Savvy and Chic Mommy-I'm hoping that we can all co-sleep together for as long as possible. Selfish but I enjoy Moo's company since my hubby works night shifts in law enforcement.

    @Janine-I feel like it hasn't been slow and gradual enough for me. I'll miss her kisses and hugs during the night when we transition her.
