my place and yours :: where I sleep



When we were certain that Tiny was on the way, Huz and I upgraded our bed to a king size. At the time, Little Owlet was creeping in during the wee hours most nights and we relished the extra space. A week or two before Tiny arrived, the midnight visits stopped and Little Owlet found her own bed most comfy.



My bed is comfy, but decidedly no frills at the moment. There's a bed rail to keep Tiny safe, and an ancient clock radio which I occasionally glance at, bleary eyed, in the night. There is no time for reading, so no book, no lamp. No glass of water in case a restless Tiny tips it up. All that will return, one day, when it's just me and Huz in that great big bed again.



Tiny has slept with me since her first day. She's not much of a sleeper. Unless I'm there. At night, she wakes regularly, until I wander in to curl up beside her. Then she sleeps soundly until morning, stirring lightly on occasion, to feed or check I'm there. I know she's ready to wake up when she grins. That cheeky, scrunchy nosed, four toothed grin, and the lunge for dada... And we begin our day...

  1. Oh yes. The good old days when a glass of water could be in easy reach at night time.

    I bought a bed rail today so that perhaps we can turn our mattress on the ground into a bed again. Love the idea of a King...

  2. A king size is to be recommended, if you are sharing with tinies and lovely to stretch out in, once they prefer their own beds!

  3. Looooooooooooved this post Loz, gosh Tiny is a sweety; & your blankets look positively fluffy!

    Suspence slept with me for the first month or so, then decided his cot was where he wanted to be... I slept awfully for weeks after he left my side!

    Thanks for choosing the theme this week My Dear.

  4. Your bed looks so cosy and comfortable. I know what you mean about the glass of water. I may soon have to remove my tissue box too.

  5. It was a relief when each of my children moved from my bed to their own, nice to have my half of the bed back! There's three in the bed again but the little four legged one won't be moving on to her own bed ever this time.

  6. Ah I think a king size bed sounds perfect especially when you're sharing. Love the comfy crochet blanket.

  7. There's lots of love in your bed and that's what counts. All the luxury comes when they your Babies leave the nest. Either way both eras are precious. Gorgeous post♥

  8. Awww that brings back such lovely snuggly memories although no luxury of king size bed we all crunched up in the double! Still cosy and precious times, although very glad to have it back to just the two of us now.
