kids sleeping in your bed

so its been a while.... johnny is 17 months know and man i didnt relize how fast they grow up... it seems just like yesterday that he was just a little baby.. and he would just be in my arms. i miss those day soo the topic of the day is......

What are your views of children sleeping in bed with you???
be honest i want to know.

so here is my take on it. leo and i both love having johnny sleep with us. he sleeps though the night and he snuggles with both of us during the night.leo says that some times when he wakes up in the middle of the nite johnny will be facing me and have his hand on my face and we will be cheek to cheek. and he says when he see's that he falls more in love with me. when i wake up and johnny is snuggling with leo leo is on his back and johnny is on his chest. and it makes my heart melt...... BUT johnny does sleep his own bed. when he doesnt want to lay in bed with us he sleeps in his bed so mommy and daddy have there time lol tmi i know. i love that we all sleep together. i love the closness and it seems we all sleep better. i did ask leo what if we had more kids we wont have enought room leo says we will just have to get a bigger bed. so there u have let me know what u think be honest your not going to hurt my feelings<3

so this moring i woke up at 6:30 and made johnny a huge breakfast. eggs, bisqets gravy sausage and bacon!!. the best part of it was while johnny was eating it he smiled at me and said ''mmmmmmmm mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm mama mmmmmmmmm'' it melted my heart!! i live for those moments. then after i cleaned him up and put him down to go play i swear he looked and me and said wav u mama.<3 when i start getting down about not having many friends to go out with or a job.. its like johnny knows it and reminds me that he he wants me here. thats all for know.
ok so know its wednesday after noon........ i have cleaned the bathroom!!!! i will clean the rest tomorrow. so a little while ago johnny was eating his lunch and all the sudden he burst out laughing i look ove and he was sticking food down his diper.... gggggggeezzzzzz but it made me laugh..
