hee hee - this is me.

Here is my addition. . .
you wake up to your babe crawling over you in his/her sleep and babbling at the same time

This is hilarious!

I love these! Here are mine:

...the last thing your 2-year-old says before falling asleep is "thank you nursie, Mama!" with the sweetest smile.

...Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman are the last thing you see as you fall asleep and the first thing you see waking up because they "sleep" standing up on the nighttable.

...your 2-year-old goes to sleep with the covers pulled over his head because he is nursing in the "bat cave."

...you forget there are actually people who do not co-sleep (I forget how "weird" we are sometimes )

...the salesman at the mattress store looks at you weird because you only buy a king size mattress - no box spring, no bed frame - just a mattress.

... you have pulled out a breast when half asleep and tried to nurse DH when he stirred in his sleep

these are hillarious... here's mine...

you've woken up looking frantically for the babe, only to find her under the sheets by your feet.

you've woken up wondering what the heck is at your feet when you're dd's face pops out the other end of the covers and says "im just rubbing your feet mum"

you've yanked the mattress off beds at hotels or other peoples houses, to make a cozy sleep spot for all.

you were bought a crib and it turned into a great laundry hamper!

I especially like the one about the big girl bed...that just happened today and dd looked at the lady like she was nuts!

earth honouring, tree hugging, yogi mamma to dd - my forest faerie (Feb/04) and ds - our new little bean born peacefully at home (01/02/11)

apperantly som of you are sleeping with MY child -- which leads me to wonder why i am not getting more sleep.

(but mine PULLS hair to self sooth)

Mine refuses blankets on his OR me -- appeartly he likes his milk chilled.

---When you wake to baby cooing, and DH saying "it is still dark, go back to sleep" and tot actually laughs and beging patting daddy.

---DS is nurseing while DH is getting intrested behind you (do I have any vote in this body any more).

Though I DO WISH my DS would get his own boob at night -- this 14 month old who can undo shirts in teh daytime, refuses to ever ROLL over for it at nbight -- he wakes and fusses, then cires if i am not FAST enogh (and I don't get long at all) and expects me to roll him, move him, and put the boob within inches of his mouth..........................i really though babies got their own boobs...not this one.

Aimee + Scott = Theodore Roosevelt (11/05) and 23 months later Charles Abraham (10/07)....praying for a little sister; the search starts May 2014

that was my dd1, to a tee, even at 2yo. i couldn't figure out what people meant when they said they slept thru nightnursing. now, dd2, she'd get my t-shirt up and everything, if i could manage to not sleep on my stomach!

my signature is usually illegible

You have to start wearing panties to bed because your toddler's toes are getting tangled in your short and curlies at night.

When you wake up in the morning to a little hand grabbing your nose, and a delighted, laughing baby when you startle

When you ease into bed every night and gingerly pull the blankets over yourself

When your dh says to you "remember when we used to have sex in bed?" and it seems so weird

when your babys foot jabs at your full bladder while she nurses

you don't own a "sleep-sack"
