Co-Sleeping Makes Me Cringe Aug 02

Parenting is very much a to-each-his-own world, but co-sleeping has become more common place, and it gives me the heebie jeebies. Not just for the safety issues, but because, goddammit, IT’S MY BED. It is my space for sleeping or other activities and there will be no one but me and the husband (well, and the cats) in it.

That’s not to say that my daughter isn’t allowed to wake me up at night, and won’t be allowed to crawl in with us for a special movie night or if she has a nightmare. But beds are for sleeping, and the bedroom is the one place in my house that isn’t covered in kid stuff of some kind. Unless you count a very large stack of Parents magazines on my nightstand.

I just had to get that off my chest. Again, if that’s how you want to raise your child, then go for it. However, for my own sanity and emotional well-being, I need my space.
