Both ds are now sleeping together in their own room and loving it! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/mecry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="crying"> And while it is nice to have the whole bed to ourselves again, I miss them. Tonight my youngest and I went to our weekly bowling league then to the toy store to return some stuff and when we got home it was late. So he came into my bed for a while, and I want to let him stay <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="innocent"> Is that a bad idea? I am glad they feel safe and loved together and there was not one ounce of pain in them going to their own room, they wanted to. But while I do want them back, I know that they are ready to sleep solo and I don't want to ruin that, kwim?<br><br>
I am going to let him stay, do you think it will make problems for tommorrow?

awww... I am fearing the day they kick me out of their room. I LOVE sleeping snuggled up to my sweaty babies who like to head butt me in the middle of the night!<br><br>
I'd let them stay- it can be a place they come sometimes when they need the extra love. I love hearing about people who are 18 and still like to climb into bed with their parents and cuddle. I hope my kids do <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I do too. And the do know that they can climg in whenever they want. Just the other morning at 4am my 6 yr old did that.<br>
I let him satay and he was so cute this morning!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> I also knew that the 6yr old might be upset, but he came in at 5:30am and asked if he could sleep with us so I told him to get in the middle! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> He knew his brother was there all night because of the bed rail being in. It was a sweet morning!

Oh no! you poor thing, and I have just had the opposite, one or the other has been with me all weekend and I told dh last night that I miss them so! I know that once we need a/c they will be in with us as we only have a/c in our bedroom.<br><br>

SoccerMom, how old are your boys? Sorry if this is OT, I'm just wondering because we're thinking of trying to get ours to sleep in a sibling bed. They both start out in their own beds (well, bed and crib) and end up in our bed with in an hour or two. I don't mind - on the nights I get enough sleep - but there are four of us now and I'm pregnant. Five just seems a little tight in one bed.

My boys are 4 and 6. The way things worked was that oldest slept with us until #2 came. Then oldest slept in a twin bed next to ours. When we moved he and I would sleep in his room and youngest would sleep with dh. We have been doing that for the past 4 years. Thankfully we have a spare room, if you get my drift <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> so that area is ok too. Even now that the boys are in their own rooms, dh and I are having a tough time getting back in the same bed, we are used to having more room, as the boys don't take up much, kwim?<br>
Our don't come in anymore unless it is super early in the morning like 4am. What size bed do you have? We seriously thought about getting a King but since they transitioned into their own room so well we are sticking with the Queen. How old are your kids?

SoccerMom, mine are much younger than that - 3.5 and 19 months. We have a king, a toddler bed and a crib all in our room. They basically only stay in "their beds" while we're downstairs. They've never been out of our room, it's just getting really crowded. I wondered if 3.5 and 1.5 are old enough - or is the little one too little (we sleep between them now). It'll just be really tight with 5 of us. My dh wants to get them those race car beds or something else that will interest them, but I think they like to cuddle and don't want to sleep alone so a sibling bed would be better. I just asked the ages because I wasn't sure if the were big enough yet.<br><br>
Thanks for getting back to me!
