I saw this shared on Facebook today, and I loved it!
Can totally relate. Especially para 3 about being kicked on the bed. I definitely have a love-hate relationship with the Erin's foot at night. ;-)
Her "official bed" is the old baby cot (with 1 side of the barrier removed) placed right next to my side of the bed. We started this a few weeks ago. The initial nights were better then expected but recently, she started climbing back to our bed again. And this girl really KICKS. Certain days, I wake up feeling bruised and battered!
BUT I do like the feel of her little warm body clambering over me at night. And how she looks half asleep but falls into a deep sleep the moment she's next to me. (her favourite sleeping position is putting her head on my upperarm. Hey, who needs a pillow when can sleep on mummy??!)
And then she starts kicking. Ow.
Yup, defintiely a love-hate relationship.
