This is the reason I don't get any sleep:
I know this has the potential to spark major parental debate with attachment parenting advocates, but whether you are for or against it, our 2 older children were sleep-trained, and it was awesome. By the time they were 6 weeks old they were sleeping through the night. But this little guy is another story. Not only am I answering every little cry, I am also co-sleeping, which is something I swore I would never do. I know why I'm doing it too. He has replaced HF. He is now my little buddy. I'm super lonely at night, and when I hear a little cry coming from upstairs, who am I kidding? I'm going to go and get him and hold him because I am desperate for company. When HF is home the two nights that he is, he says, "I can't share the bed with you guys anymore". But since Beau is my best friend now, what's a girl supposed to do? Yeah. It's a major dilemma. I told him that when he's done with the academy that I will let Beau sleep in his own bed. But right now we need each other.
Oh, and I'm majorly insulted! HF said this morning that he thinks that Beau looks like Horatio from CSI Miami. Have you seen this guy act? For some reason, he really, really irritates me. I think I've only seen the show a couple of times, but does it seem odd to anyone else that the Crime Scene Investigators also have the authority to not only investigate crime scenes, but do security sweeps, serve warrants, carry guns, arrest people, etc. etc.? Anyway, it just bugs me. And he's so cheesy! Do you know anyone that acts that way? Facing a different direction when talking to you with their head cocked towards you? And have you noticed that the crime scene investigators are also dressed to the nines? I guess it's just another Cop fantasy show. Maybe it really is realistic!? But who am I to pass any judgment? I grew up watching all the cheesy, yet awesome, 70s and 80s cop shows. And I'm guessing that HF just said it because he knew it would get a reaction. What do you think? Is he a mini Horatio?
