The Family Bed

Mallory and Michael have been sleeping with us since Michael was born. We have a king bed and it's all been fine until recently. Everybody's getting bigger and the kids are getting sort of squished in the middle. Mallory decided she didn't like getting squeezed out so she wanted to sleep somewhere else. We thought it would be good for Mallory and Michael to transition to Michael's room since he has a queen bed in there. That way they're not totally alone after being with the family. Two nights ago we put them down in there and they went to sleep and that was that. Paul and I were watching TV and talking about how we were giong to miss them with us. How we couldn't believe they weren't in our room sleeping right then. I emailed a friend saying they were in another room and how I was sad but it was OK and everyone would probably sleep better. Paul and I headed to bed around 10:30. I thought it was great to be able to walk in our room and turn on the light to get ready for bed. I got all cozied in and stretched out when pitter patter, pitter patter, here comes Michael. Five minutes later, you guessed it, Mallory crawls in. So much for transitioning them out. The family bed is alive and well at the Matte home. Maybe this summer.
