One downside

More parenting videos on JuiceBoxJungle

One downside to co-sleeping is sleeping through my alarm when my four-year-old inadvertently muffles my alarm. I've said it before and I'll say it again - I love my cuddle time. but I really really hate to miss a swim. Sometimes it works the opposite way of course. An added bonus occurs when my little dude pops into the room at 3AM and wakes me up 2 hours before I need to be up to swim. In cases like those, he's like a little public service announcement: "Mommy. Wake up. Available work time."

I know I'm a freak to actually enjoy these wakings. I think I was trained well and hard by my first-born colicky nightmare of a sleeper to spring up and be completely alert at any point and time. And there is just something about that early pre pre pre dawn set of hours in front of my computer that is lovely and quiet and focused. Only problem is that by the time I'm done swimming at 7AM I'm ready for lunch.
