Do your children sleep with you at night?
Our little toddler does. She is less than two years old. She is too old to be in a crib and so we gave it away so somebody's baby could have better use for it. Actually, we gave it to mother-in-law because she knew who to give it to. The last time we spoke, she told us it's already in good hands.
We believe she is also too young to sleep alone in a separate room yet, so we let her sleep with us. I wonder at what age we are going to let her sleep alone. Frankly, right now, I am not comfortable at the thought yet.
For safety purposes, the three of us sleep on just the mattress part of the bed. Hubby has discarded the bed frame and stands just to prevent our little girl from accidental fall in case we won't notice her rolling over. It's practical that way.
I think it would be great to have rustic bedroom furniture, don't you think so? Oh, I really like it when there's a rustic bedroom nightstand beside our bed. Right now, though, we are still all about safety. Hopefully, when our little girl is already old enough and ready to sleep in a separate bedroom, I look forward to have the bedroom fixed to our liking.
I found the photo below at my sister-in-law's Facebook account. Hmmm, this is what I want our bed and bedroom furniture to look like one day. Wishful thinking! :-)
