In one week, we leave for a short (five night) vacation with friends. We're renting a house. Not on a lake, but not far from one, and the setup looks perfect for one couple, two singles, and a toddler.
Plus, the house has a screened-in porch, which may not be technically necessary, but is going to be awesome.
We took a two-night trip to visit the lake house of friends last weekend (the sitter was off) and Elle loved the beach and the sand, and got more and more brave with each moment that passed. So I'm looking forward to being able to spend a bit more time
My parents are coming over and staying in a B&B for a couple of the nights we're there. Of course, it's gone from "we'll be in town, we'll get together for dinner once, we don't need to spend all the time together" to "what are we doing for dinner every night?"
This really wasn't intended to be a family vacation with them. Oh, well. It's still a vacation.
On our mini-vacation last week, I tried out sleeping in the same room as Elle. Hahahaha. Let's just say we won't start cosleeping anytime soon. Elle wakes up between sleep cycles; most nights, in her own room, she goes right back to sleep. Sometimes she'll make a little noise, but she's out again very quickly.
When Mama's in the room, she remembers. She wakes up, sits up, and wants to par-tay. It's really funny, unless it's 2:30 in the morning and you're tired...
So yeah. No cosleeping in this family.
