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.
