When was the last time you got a decent night’s sleep?
It has been part of my life for so long that I have woven it into the fabric of my personality and sense of self.

For some reason, when you become a parent, comments start coming your way (or you start throwing them in someone else’s direction) so fiercely that it completely consumes you.... Co-sleeping is one of those hot-button issues, and, just like breastfeeding, most parents typically sway one way or the other with vigor.
Sure, we're very compatible as a couple. We share the same political views, sense of humor, and even religion. But when it comes to sleeping under the same blanket, we're like the Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries of the marital bed. I'm a light sleeper, so anything I make contact with other than the sheets is going to wake me up, such as my husband's ice cold feet. He thinks it's adorable to use my warm legs as heating pads for his cold-as-death limbs.
No one's ultimate bedroom fantasy should be a pathetic, slumber-oriented solo venture.
