I remember when I got my first daughter Dylan sleeping through the night. She was 6 months old and when she slept from 7 pm to 7 am, I wanted to shout with crazy glee. Okay, first I had to tiptoe in multiple times to make sure she was okay but then I expressed that glee thing.

I adored her new sleeping schedule but didn’t quite understand that once a baby becomes a toddler and can actually get out of her crib or bed ON HER OWN, it all can get insane again. I now have 5 kids and can not get through an entire night without being woken up. Sometimes it’s once. Sometimes it’s 60 million times (estimate).

And the worst offender is my 4 year old son Chase.

I’m peacefully sleeping and suddenly there is hot breath in my face and I open my eyes to this…

Chase: Frette post

Whoa. What’s up buddy?!

Good question right? Because when someone is peering at you, just inches from your face, at 2 in the morning, something must be up. Right!?

Well, let’s see…

It’s either a bad dream, hot pajamas, a stomachache, he can’t sleep, the room’s too dark, a strange noise, he feels itchy, he has to pee, he’s hungry, he has to poop, checking to see if it’s morning yet, needs to be tucked in again, his nightlight isn’t working, he can’t find his pillow nightlight, he can’t find his sister (who is sleeping in her bed right near him), he missed us or he just wanted to say hi.

We either pull him into bed so that he can sleep perpendicular with his body taking up every width of the bed or we walk him back to his own room.

I know this won’t last forever because my daughter Summer used to do the same thing and now she sleeps perfectly well in her own room without needing me for hot pajama emergencies.

But for now (like many parents), I’m often jarred awake. So when parents are sleeping, they deserve more than a flat pillow and 20 thread count sheets. They deserve luxury!

Like 100% Egyptian cotton. Bed linens crafted in Italy. Cashmere blankets. Luxury you usually only find in the most amazing hotels. And you can find all this at Frette. And while you’re at it, you deserve one of their heaven on earth robes.

    But that face!!! How could you resist? Our 5 1/2 year old visits our bed so frequently that now if I awake at 6.30 am and he is not in bed with us I race to his room to see if he is okay…as “they” say and as you know this too will pass and when it does you will miss it but in the meantime enjoy those egyptian sheets – who knows they might be so comfortable all your kiddies might want to join you in your bed 🙂

    Being woken a zillion times might just be better with nice sheets! Last night I had two pint sized midnight visitors who kicked me and rolled all night long. Yawn.
