Yeah my kids love to hang off me at every given moment. Most days it super sweet but some days I just need 5 mins of no one touching me.

I don't know! You'd have to ask the people who always say those things. I'm hoping it's a long time before that happens, but will accept it if it's earlier.

I remember being confused when people said this to me when mine were younger because I had 3 children with severe intolerances, reflux who really never slept even when they co slept in my bed and were baby worn. Now mine are 8, 6 and 4 tbh I don't really have any real recollection of those sleepless nights even though there were many. My brain has wiped pretty much most recollection of the exhaustion with babies that screamed sometimes 6 hours straight or I had to sit with them seriously ill in hospital… This is to the point I'm like omg maybe I could have a fourth child… But then I have to forcefully remind myself apart from the cute cuddles of a newborn most of it is awful. Now my kids are this age it is seriously the best time I've ever been a parent. I get to take all 3 on my own to movies, parks, beaches whatever and we actually have a way decent time. I think I more think they should say "Hey hang in there there is light at the end of the tunnel where you won't even remember this sh** because you're having such a rad time… Just don't go back once you're free…"

I will never ever miss co-sleeping. I want my bed and my nights (and my sanity) back.

I cant access the article. but going from the replies., I guess it is about not stressing the cr@p and enjoying the good times. I sure had my hands full when I had small babies, read my signature. I had three babies under two, and then four under 6 . I also had a husband whose work took him away for random jobs, minimum 3 weeks , up to 6 wks away. now I have adult children, and beautiful grandchildren, and we all love spending time together. it is great now, and I have to think back to the hard times. sometimes, I think , wow, how did I manage it all. but I think the secret is, one day at a time, don't spend your time worrying about next week or next month, just get through today. hugs marie.
