Let me just start off by saying, Yes, we are a dysfunctional family when it comes to sleeping and I know honey, it's ALL my fault. I find it impossible to turn the little ones (who aren't so little anymore) away when they want to crawl into bed with us.. I know I know I'm not doing them or us any favors. I know all the logic and reasoning but still. So a few weeks ago Alex was having trouble going to sleep and wanting to come into bed with us every night. I knew it had to stop because our bed is a Queen size and just not big enough (maybe we just need a bigger bed?) Actually we sold our King and got a Queen just for this reason. Mark thought it would take care of the "problem". So I realized I have to do something. Mark doesn't get enough sleep as it is. So we told Alex he could sleep at the foot of our bed. He was perfectly happy with this. Then one night Connor decided he wanted to sleep there too. Well we couldn't say no since Alex is there. So the boys have been out of school "off track" for the past 3 weeks and have been sleeping at the foot of our bed every night. Mark is just tickled. He swears we are going to move into a one bedroom house..might as well as he says, we could save money on a smaller house.
We are going to get back into our routine and our own beds when they go back to school.. I know you don't believe me but if we don't get this resolved I might need a good lawyer soon.. seriously.
So the boys have been "arguing" a lot. They have had way too much quality time together this break. It is driving us nuts. So the other night I hear Connor start talking in his sleep, sounds like he's arguing with Alex. Then Alex starts "arguing" back in his sleep. I get up thinking they are fighting over the blankets but no.. they are both sound asleep having their own version of a fight with the other.. Not making a lot of sense but going back and forth. I wanted to laugh but I was afraid it would wake Mark up and he would boot all three of us out the the bedroom for good!
