We don't usually let the girls sleep in our bed. Occasionally we have little spend the night parties in there, but the rule of thumb normally is....Go to sleep in your own bed, if you wake up in the middle of the night or early in the morning, come on in and snuggle. I wouldn't trade those moments for anything in the world.
Yesterday morning Reese crawled in our bed and snuggled for a bit then leaned over and whispered. "Mommy, I'm going downstairs by myself so you can sleep longer."
I heard a mild ruckus but nothing alarming and after a few minutes she quietly crept back into our room with a breakfast she had made for me all by herself! It consisted of dry cheerios in a bowl, peach Diego yogurt, and a bottle of water complete with a straw. All this was teetering ever so slightly on a cookie sheet she found for the tray.
She was so excited about her special treat for me. She even stayed to help me eat it! I wish I could have frozen that moment in time.....
