    Melissa it’s been so great hearing about the joys of being a mom to your kids! Most of them took me back to my time of being mom to my boys now grown up. I hope they provide me with grandchildren at some stage – WHEN they get married.
    All best to you –

    I’ll join you in also stating – TEN YEARS OLD???!!! I think it’s great that you’re aware that you and your kid need your own sleeping spaces. Wish I knew more parents who are more forward-thinking like you :)

    Yay! And we’re done with the A to Z! Congratulations! You survived LOL

    9 months, wow that’s a long time to have a baby in your room. We had our daughter in our room for about 3 nights after getting home from the hospital, then she was in her own room, in her own bed. Anyone who thinks you can have a baby wake up and need you and you not hear them is nuts! lol Seriously, babies are loud, and when they need you they cry and you, most definitely here them. They don’t need you ever time they coo or roll over. They need their sleep, and so do you. People really have children sleeping with them til age 10…must be as nuts as the people who nurse and nurse and nurse. Now, back in the dark ages, when I was a young mother NO ONE kept their babies in their rooms, and oddly we all managed fine without a monitor, so did our parents. I sometimes think the monitors make parents too involved, and or lazy. Then again we don’t live in a mansion, we can hear from one to the next.
