I have a pati, patni aur woh situation. The significant third is, you guessed right, my little devil- Anush. Soon after I returned home post delivery, every night, we put her in between us since the pediatrician told us that it increased bonding. My friends abroad thought it so cool since they needed to keep their baby in a separate room of his own.
When she was little( littler) she would sleep straight and it was ok. Now she occupies a pretty good part of a queen sized bed, keeps changing poses like a supermodel at a photo shoot and I, being horizontally challenged, have it tough. Navy manages a larger portion of the bed as always for some magical reason. Anyway, now we cannot not imagine it any other way.
But how do you tell a baby- " Ok we are in a mood- can you sleep now and quickly" Or even this would do - " Ok now that you are asleep let me build up a mood(!) and yes- pl don't wake up too soon"
Seems like it is a good bye to all those spontaneous bursts of "energy"
P.S. I think I should delete this before Anush learns to read.
