My child knows that every night she has to go to sleep in her bed. If she wakes up in the middle of the night from a nightmare she can climb into mommy's bed for some cuddling and to chase away the monsters. Most nights when the bed routine starts she asks nonstop to sleep in mommy's bed. Well, she doesn't say it in a full sentence she just repeats "mommy's bed?" over and over and over again. On rare occasions when I just want her to fall asleep right away or I want some extra cuddling time she can sleep in my bed.
