We love having the boys in bed with us. Raf is really a little boy who likes company and a lot of cuddles at night, and Charlie seems to be that way, too. It doesn't make for a great night's sleep if both boys are poorly, and since Christmas it has been difficult to string much sleep together. We've just welcomed our third virus into the house since Christmas, so this weekend Charlie was back to waking up every hour. Bless his heart. He doesn't wake up crying, but taps me on my arm until I wake up.
It's definitely worth the sleep deprivation, and I do think that I likely get a lot more sleep sleeping with the boys as wake-ups are usually brief. And, really, how could you not love waking up to smiles and kisses and hugs.
This afternoon we enjoyed a very, very rare family nap. Rafi very, very rarely sleeps in the house so after a very awful few weeks of sleep, it was lovely to get in a cheeky, if short, nap in.
