Ask Me Anything: How do all 3 of you sleep in the same bed?

1)How do all 3 of you sleep in the same bed? It must be a very big bed.

2) How long will you let little Peeper sleep with you?

We have a queen-sized bed, and it's really not crowded at all. Peeper spends a good part of the night snuggled up to one or the other of us, but she's got room to sprawl between us when she wants, arms out, with a hand on each of us.

We don't have a specific time-table for how long we'll continue to have a "family bed," we're just going to play it by ear.

As long as we're all (or at least 2/3 of us) happy with the arrangement, that's where we'll be.

(Unless, of course, that 2/3 is me and Shrike. We'll obviously let Peeper move out to her own room when she wants to!)

I assume that when the time comes, there will be a transitional period when she goes to bed in her own room and comes to our bed in the middle of the night, which will probably happen less and less often over time.

I really can't imagine a time, though, that she won't be welcome to join us when she needs some extra cuddles and closeness.

Ask me anything

  1. Eventually it does get old. Ashley did not appreciate having to share a bed with me during the Hurricane Rita evacuation when she was 18. ;D


What say you?
