The perfect solution

Cameron and Colin sleep right next to each other every night.

Shane built Colin's bed, and when Cameron got old enough, Shane built a trundle that would slide underneath Colin's bed every morning, but would pull out each night for Cameron to sleep on. (See a picture here.) I love it, for safety reasons. The boys love it because at 'rest' and at night, they are practically sleeping in the same bed--just different levels!

We had yet another storm a couple of nights ago....which caused a bit of a freak out for Cameron, as usual. Colin was alright, but I could tell he was borderline on the edge too. Cameron asked to come in Mommy and Daddy's bed, but I really, really wanted to actually get some sort of sleep that night had an idea that I thought just may solve everyone's problems.....

"Cameron, do you want to sleep in Colin's bed with him?'

*Sniff, sniff* "Uhh huuuuuhhhhhh."

"Colin, is that okay with you?"

"Sure, Mommy." (He then smiles from ear to ear.)


Ah, the perfect solution. They both slept like babies through the rest of the storm, and the rest of the night, for that matter. The result in pictures:



5 minutes after falling asleep:
(I love how their arms are linked)
10 minutes later....


10 minutes after that....
