Can I sleep with you mama?

{ 13 } can i sleep with you mama?

in general, my rule has always been to never let the children sleep with me. all the parenting books tell you not to, that it will create codependency and bad habits. however, lately, this rule has not been kept. the main reason is that i'm afraid that one day i will regret saying no all the time. i can't pass on moments like these, to be able to snuggle with my cute little cherubs from time to time is like heaven one earth. for now, it's sweet dreams for mama and lucy.

  1. I gave up saying not the her a long time ago...she knows my weak areas...her gentle voice is the biggest most powerful weapon I have seen...sorry honey I know that is not what you want to hear...love you

  2. Awwww...I'm so with you on the co-dependency...but they only stay little for so long before we WON'T get the chance to cuddle with them! When they're in the bed with me, for the most part when I'm not lying like a pretzel trying not to disturb them, they are better than any sleep aid in the world! Love the photo...as usual!

  3. You're right. We stick to the rule but once in a while we relax it especially when our children are ill.

    Many thanks.

  4. I feel exactly the same as you do on co-sleeping. Though when she hops in our bed in the morning (after we get her from her room; even at 2.5 yrs she still waits for us to go and get her!) there's something sooo nice about having the sweet little thing in with us for awhile.

  5. One day, eventually, the request will stop coming in and when that time comes ... we will suddenly wish, "If only they would ask again .." Enjoy the moments.
