She’s almost 5 years old… and I’m not ashamed to say we still sleep together every night.
True she disturbs my sleep each time when she comes into my space. Especially so when she does her usual “finger-in-my-belly-button” habit… which she somehow finds to be a comfort. Sometimes it makes me think that’s the exact purpose of my belly button. She could be feeling terribly sick at night, or even that time when she vomited through the night. She could be fidgeting through the night, but would somehow calm herself back to sleep once her finger finds it’s way into my belly button.
Whatever works… though for sure that ends up waking me up too in a very grouchy mood. *sigh*
The daddy on the other hand wishes her back in her own bed cos he gets super frustrated when she kicks his face in the middle of the night (somehow yahn prefers to sleep horizontal rather than vertical). But even he admits the bliss with his daughter sleeping by his side hugging his arms like a bolster. :)
I don’t know when she’ll outgrow this and starts asking for her personal space away from us, locking up her bedroom door demanding her privacy. So I’m just going to (try to) enjoy this want to stick around us, even if it gives me all these eyebags from interrupted sleep.
