I do not know how many out here have had this experience yet...but my ds has decided it is his time to leave the family bed.
I am happy for him to make his own desicion on this issue but I am having a major time getting any sleep myself now.
He wants to sleep in his own bed in his toy room which he is now calling "his bedroom" and I sleep in my bedroom and have the monitor on to hear him if he needs me(which has been not often)but sleep all night with one ear open and am on my 4th night of my son independence and dragggging.
Dh said to go sleep with him, but I do not want ds to feel like I am smothering him and I want him to be free to make his own choices w/o me hovering.
Ds asked where I will sleep and I told him in the family bed buit if he needs me to just say "mamma" and I will come and he said "yes mamma," and he has slept fine there and is excited to sleep in his "big boy bed."
am getting no sleep.....I am tired tired tired
I do not guess ther is really much anyone can offer to me other than to let me cry here and get thru this new devlopmetal stage and I know in time I will sleep better w/o him but these first 4 nights have been hard. Really
I really thought he was going to do this just once and be back in our bed the next night but I guess I was off on that one...lol..
thanks for reading......edited for major typos due ot no sleep...lol
