Kids In The Bed(room)

Close viewing of the above picture reveals a child in the corner.
As parents we allow kids in the parental bed. To not grant the kid bed access is to condemn the kid to a vast host of developmental disorders.

Eventually this has to stop lest the parent never get any rest and incur a developmental disorder retroactively.

We've been through a few rounds of kids in the bed, kids not in the bed. At the moment we have a new manifestation of this old-as-time-itself dynamic -- the kids just want to hang out in the bedroom as everyone has her/his personal screen and it's fun to be together.

Despite my attempts at being a curmudgeon, I like us all being together in a sloth-like pile of lethargy. This is a good weekend activity.

  1. I don't have any kids of my own yet, but when I do I will probably allow them in my bed... as long as it isn't ALL THE TIME! When I was little we had to sleep in our own beds (except sometimes when we had a bad nightmare or something) But we were allowed to get up early in the morning, go jump in our parents' bed, and go back to sleep. Our dog, and even our parakeet, used to jump in too!
