Night moves.

So we're a co-sleeping family. Yes, still. Strange to many of you, I know. And others of you are right there with us.

I met with a child psychologist this morning to discuss Ziggy's nightmares and night terrors, and his lingering separation anxiety. Confirmed what I already know, and all the things I come back to. That he'll grow out of it. That he's resilient. That perhaps we are more indulgent than some parents. That he is more anxious and sensitive in general than other children. That his parents are perhaps more sensitive and over taxed than many of their own peers. That perhaps we are too strapped for cash and time and Ziggy has a sense of this. That he's picking up on the stress and difficulty in the lives of the adults he lives with.

Clearly, we have work to do.
