about once a month or so it seems like everyone ends up in our bed. I don't know how it happens. There must be some kind of family ESP that travels through the house. This morning was a Family Bed day. Everyone was there, the HotY, Alex, Syd, Lauren, myself, the dog AND the cat! Let's just say it is very cozy - and no one EVER wants to leave. Ummm, excuse me, it's morning, there are things to do, let's get out of bed people. But no one listens to me - and you won't find me kicking and screaming to be let out either. Sure one or two of them may take off for a minute or two - but then they are back, crawling and kicking and trying to find their way into the middle of the heap - since that seems to be the coveted spot - right in the middle. It's like the Holy Grail of the family bed.
So even though it is very cozy and every once in a while someone takes a jab from an elbow and the cat isn't super crazy about the entire arrangement I secretly wish every morning was a family bed morning. All snuggled together, laughing and tickling and fighting for the middle. BUT it's one of those things that just happens, and if it happened every day the magic of the moment might be lost. So I'll take the family bed mornings when I get them - pets and all!
