The perspective of a cosleeping kid



Hobo Mama wants you to know she's a professional blogger! Look at how professional she's being!

We visited my parents this month and stayed in my old bedroom, complete with its sheep wallpaper that my mom and I had hung and the dollhouse I had received as a Christmas present.

Karsten and Sam enjoyed an air mattress in my younger brother's old room. Mikko, Alrik, and I squished together on my old queen bed, handed down from my older brother before me, after both refused to endure an entire night on the floor mattress that had been set up. Too many spiders in my parents' house, so I don't blame them.

Alrik was fascinated with the historical sleeping arrangements.

"This was your room when you were a kid?" he asked. "Who did you sleep with?"

No one, just myself, I responded.

He was agog. "You slept by yourself when you were a kid?"

Yep.

He digested this for a bit. "Wow, you were brave."

To Sam, on Father's Day

Hobo Mama wants you to know she's a professional blogger! Look at how professional she's being!



It seems obvious to me that
all fathers should be as wonderful
as my kids' father.




Thank you for parenting and loving our kids, Sam.



We are so very blessed.
