Sharing the Bed


Each night before bed, for as long as we've been married, Camaron and I do the same thing. Right before going to sleep, as we're getting comfortable on our pillows, Camaron and I will lean over toward each other, say "goodnight. I love you," then kiss. For the last few months, that routine has slightly changed. The part where we "lean over toward each other" has changed to "we lean over Fox toward each other." Fox has become quite fond of sleeping in our bed at night. Every night. 

Most of the time, we don't mind at all. He's an adorable sleeper ...when he's not kicking or head-butting, or waking up demanding treats or milk. We experienced all of the latter last night, so Camaron and I decided that sharing the bed has got to end. We've never planned on it being a permanent thing, of course, but we just kept putting it off for some reason. I would have made last night the last night, but then I got sick today, so maybe we'll try tomorrow. 

Ok, about getting sick: It was so embarrassing. At work, I was helping someone with a return and I just got really light-headed. You know the feeling, when it feels like all the blood just drains from your face? The worst. I went to the back (had to fake tying my shoe on the way, because I couldn't stand any longer) to drink some water and have a little snack to hopefully help whatever was happening. But when I went back up front, it happened again. I had to leave mid-transaction again:( My bosses were really nice though and said I could go home. I decided that was best, so I called Camaron to come pick me up. And no, I'm not pregnant. You better believe that's what everyone asked me. 

Back to the important stuff now: any tips on getting a child to sleep in their own bed? A child who really doesn't want to go back to his bed? And shares a room with his little sister, so I don't think we can just have him cry it out or anything like that? Is this going to be as rough as I predict it will be?
