Last night as both of my children turned horizontal in bed, I realized that bedsharing is like the game of Risk. I need to stake out my territory and start rolling a little better or I'm going to get knocked down to Oceania.
ha. I completely empathize. Last night all four of us were in bed. The husband and I had our heads in a respective top corner of the bed, the 2 year old was stretched lengthwise across the top of the bed between our heads. The 4 year old was sleeping between us, his head near his sisters bum. I woke up once and blearily wondered just what in the heck we're going to do once baby 3 is here this summer. Starting to think we need a full-sized bed addition, or something. I feel like we're playing Sleeping Tetris as it is.
Oceania is a fantastic territory to conquer early in the game. It's hard to take once someone has it fortified, so it becomes a little troop producing machine (Mordor functions the same way in LotR Risk).Not that that has anything to do with your point. lol
Ha! That's hilarious. I've been staring at our king-size mattress, which used to appear so vast, and wondering how four of us are going to fit, when one of us currently loves to sleep sideways and smushed right up against me, with a foot in my spine or an elbow on my skull. I move him, and it's like I'm a magnet — fwoop, he's back.
I totally understand the magnet thing- and now I have 2 magnets! I guess it's more like I'm Europe than Oceania : the kids are Asia and Africa, squished up to me and DH gets the Americas. Oceania is the unused bed space that isn't big enough for anyone to really be comfortable. :)
I consider myself relatively crunchy, but I've had it with the toddler interloper in my bed. I love her, but I am so sick of sleeping on the 6 inches on one side. I want my bed back!
