"I will NEVER let my kids..."

         Have you ever said those words? "I will never let my kids"...and fill in the blank.  I will never let my kids eat fast food, especially before they turn 1 (or 2 or 8 ha!).  I will never let my kid fuss in a restaurant and disrupt other people while eating. I will never let my kids make me so mad that I scream. I will never let my kid sleep on their tummy because back to sleep, right? I will NEVER let my kids sleep with me! NEVER! Hahaha! I laugh at myself now at all the times I said things like these above.  I took this picture below a few days ago.
   These girls are in mine and Quinton's bed. Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do and when it comes to sleep I'm all about making that happen.  When Deci was younger we were really strict with not letting her sleep with us.  When she woke up in the middle of the night and climbed in bed with us we always took her back.  We figured if we let her once that she would keep coming back.  It's funny how when child number 2 comes along sleep becomes more important and you bend the rules a little more. These girls wake up often in the middle of the night and most of the time we encourage that they stay in their beds but sometimes it's easier to tuck them tight in the bed with us and go back to sleep. If you want to read a funny story about us switching Deci over to her "big girl" bed read HERE.
