I have a serious problem.
Both of the kids are in the habit of coming into our bed at night. I wouldn't mind this, because they wait until we're asleep, except they sleep ON ME. One sticks her head on my left shoulder, one on my right, and I end up pinned to the bed, unable to move, for the rest of the night.
Somehow, they do this without waking me up.
It is giving me bursitis in my shoulders. It's doing something bad to my ring finger on my right hand. I bought Aspercream yesterday, people! I'm 33!!!
I woke up this morning, and I can't move my arm. I can't turn my head all the way to the right. I HURT.
I have got to get these kids out of my bed.
The thing is that we were really good for several weeks about waking up when MG came in, and escorting her back to her room. So she adapted and learned to sneak in without waking me up. Now, by the time I wake up, the damage is already done, I am already in pain, and I wake up cranky and yelling.
BJ suggests that we start shutting our door, hoping that the door opening will wake one of us up. I may put a bell on it or something, too. Or train Max to lay in front of the door and bark when the kids open it.
How do you get/keep your kids out of your bed?
