Not enough quality sleep

It's been 2 weeks since the girls have been sleeping by themselves and I am back in the masters bedroom. My husband and I did not have a falling out, I just prefer to sleep with my kids than with him. I sleep better knowing that I am in the same room with them and they sleep better knowing I'm with them. My family loves co- sleeping, if my husband didn't work we would all be sleeping in the masters bedroom.

It was a hard decision for me not to sleep with my kids, specially the youngest. For 5 years I have been sleeping with her. I have to get use to sleeping with my husband all over again and his the same way. Being a light sleeper I am constantly woken up by my husbands twitching, tossing and turning. Haven't gotten any quality sleep since I moved back in. On the other hand, my kids are sleeping in their own room by themselves now. I am so proud of them. I still miss sleeping with my youngest. Did I do the right thing? When they reach puberty I am positive they will no longer want to sleep or snuggle with me anymore,I hope that won't be the case. I don't regret co sleeping with my babies and I would do it all over again.

You did the right thing. You read my post so you know why I think that. Intimacy is a huge part of the relationship and sleeping with your spouse is a major part of that. My poor guy is a super light sleeper and I'm an insomniac so I'm up all night and he's always exhausted, the poor guy. I've offered to sleep in the guest room but he says never again, we just might get one of those sleep number beds instead.
