This past week my older girl, S, has been very needy. I haven’t yet figured out why but we are doing our best to give her the extra love and attention she is craving.
We transitioned her out of her crib into a full-sized bed a year ago and she still has nights where she feels like the bed is too big for her alone. These are the nights when she asks one of us to sleep with her. This week she instead asked to sleep in our bed. Highly unusual for her. We obliged for two nights but concerned that a habit would be formed & we’d never get her out of our bed tonight she had to sleep in her own bed. J is sleeping with her, as is the cat. Which means after two nights of a crowded bed, full of people and kitties, I am all alone tonight. I thought I’d be happy. I thought I’d be stretched out using up as much free bed space as I could. I’m not.
