when we first got married, we had a king size bed...even then mommy managed to snuggle into daddy's space and squeeze him out of the bed! so when erika came along, we said she will sleep in the cot...but somehow...it was too tiring moving her from the cot...feeding her...putting her back...that she end up sleeping in the middle of our bed and she spread out like a STAR...so we were left to our tiny little side and clucthing onto the bed for our dear lives. (we were also afraid that we squashed her while she happily kicked and pushed for more space!)
so when ellisa came along, daddy said...we are gonna sleep better...we took out our king size bed, moved it to erika's room, bought a queen and super single and another single bed...that makes out to be about 11 and 1/2 feet of mattress space (wall to wall) for all 4 of us...good idea right?
erika turn out to be just like mommy...insisting that daddy hugs her to sleep...so when she's asleep...daddy moved to the single bed to have a peaceful sleep...then erika feel, feel, feel...no warm body...wakes up in search of daddy..found him...squeeze into his single bed...daddy suddenly feels cramped...then quietly move back to the queen...that's when he realised mommy has taken half the queen and baby ellisa is occupying the super single all by herself (also like a star)...nevermind, still got half the queen...happy to go back to dreamland...opps...something heavy just dropped on him again...aiyoo this erika is back on him! now he has only half a queen for him & erika...he gives up...this cat and mouse game!
no wonder daddy says he wakes up so refreshed in hotels when on trips!
