Still loving the family bed after 7 years. I swear, I never intended to crash with my kids for this long, and I have no intention of making a change in the near future.
I know there are a few folks out there who would like to see a post just like this. A year ago I scoured all the threads in search of other parents who slept with the older kids, but all the most recent threads were about little kids and, quite often, the transition to separate beds. I ended up posting to search out other parents who weren't looking to change the status quo.
Well, now the girls are 5 and 7, and it's been another year and I am loving it still. Things aren't perfect, of course. But last night after staying up with dh watching TV (etc.!) Brushed teeth, put on my jammies and slipped in between my girls. DD1 rolled over, plopped her legs over mine, wrapped her little arm around me and feel asleep again. Last night was a happy night.
