Our girls love having their own rooms now, but they seem to find it hard to stay there at night. Every night is like musical beds. They move in and sleep with each other. They rotate through our bed. I never know whose going to be where by morning. In fact, sometimes, if too many join us in our bed, one or both of us will wind up in the kids bed!
I just wonder how common this is. I don't remember ever having any inclination as a boy growing up, to move into my parents' or sibling's bed. I was happy to have my own place to sleep.
Is this a gender difference? I know my wife had a history of snuggling up with her parents--even into her teens!
I'm not too worried about stopping it. It doesn't bother me, and I doubt it would have any negative consequences. Although part of me thinks that (a) it would be better for their independence if they learned to sleep alone, and (b) it would be nice to wake up with just one woman (my wife)in bed with me. :-) On the otherhand, I can't knock the family bonding too.
Any thoughts? Similar experiences?
