It’s been a while since I slept on the floor of my son’s room. Yes, I spend a few minutes laying with my head next to Miles’ on his pillow each night (You lay down too, please, mommy! Mommy lay down too!)
But for real sleeping on the floor, I haven’t done that since the baby days laying next to his crib when he was sick or having a difficult night.
Last night I did though!
This kid is just having a rough go at the whole sleeping thing which translates to his parents also missing quite a bit of sleep.
Last night it was a 3 a.m. wake-up facilitated by scared screams and cries. And it took a lot (and a long time) to get him back to sleep, including me staying in his room and sleeping on the floor. I think I probably fell asleep before he did; and we both ended up on the floor next to his bed rather in it.
Here’s to hoping for a restful night’s sleep!
