I found myself perusing my gigantic stack of magazines yesterday, when I came across this snippet (that I'm now paraphrasing cause I already recycled the magazine).
In a perfect world, the father would have the side of the bed closest to the door so that HE can be the one to intercept all the middle-of-the-night visitors.
Huh. I guess I live in a perfect world, since Husband does indeed have the side of the bed closest to the door. I, however, am the one who is awakened by any middle-of-the-night visitors, and I am the one who walks her back to her bed every time.
I think that no matter what, kids can sniff out where Mommy is hiding.
