Fever=Sleep with mummy

The kids are not feeling well lately, Michelle was down with fever last weekend and Emily still has running nose and a lot of phelgm especially in the morning. Whenever they have fever, my MIL or me will normally sleep with them the whole night through because MIL always reminded me that fever is no small matter in children, must be extra careful. Michelle is happy because she get to kidnap mummy from daddy for the whole night and Emily is delighted too. I set my alarm at 3.00am in the morning to check on her temperature else I know I will sleep like a pig, no doubt her fever came back and I got up to feed her the medication in which she gladly obliged. Thank God no fever throughout yesterday night which means I can go back to my room.....of course the girls would be bargaining again "Mummy can you sleep with us for another night? Mummy what happen if the fever returns? Mummy......"

aww....they miss mummy sleeping beside them.

we are still co-sleeping with our children because once they are grown up into teenager, no longer they would want us to sleep with them.

take care mummy! your girls so adorable... happily sleeping with mummy only when they got fever,(poor thing)...
maybe you should award them a chance to sleep with you when they achieve something also...

Yeah, true.... they had just getting used to sleep in their room... hmm reward them har... it's a good idea, but one of my friend commented that we should not use the "you behave = reward" technique woh but sometimes it's so difficult.... we tend to relate good behavior = award, misbehave = reinforcement/punishment...
