Sleepy Hollow

 (waking up)

i have a little mister who happens to love to snuggle with his mom at nights. i also am a mom who LOVES to snuggle with her misters all day. I have absolutely no problem with that. In fact, from the beginning of our relationship we have slept together with the babe. we have never rolled on him or suffocated him. I think i am too aware he is there. but there comes a time in a mother's life when she has got to let reality sink in and she has got to get some rest. i had seen other friend moms encountering the same perplexing difficulty and was encouraged by their triumphs and so i had to make the choice and severe the ties. after four nights of one sad night owl, two closed doors, and a loud heater, i finally can say that this little guy is sleeping through the night. he is finally on a schedule and i really love it. but i will say, with the permission of my bed partner, we sneak him in for family naps still. its just a sacrifice i am unwilling to make. 
i have to talk him into it sometimes.

  it starts with getting all cozy

and then it's off to dreamland for this sleepy squirrel.
