It blows my mind that I don't hear more stories about people being scalped, blinded, de-throated, maimed or in some other way permanently scarred by 8 month old babies. They climb on you, pinch, bite, scratch, kick, pull hair and grind their knuckles into your eye sockets, among other things. All the while grunting and breathing heavy like some brutal invader. Yet, we choose to co-sleep and we've never given it a second thought. It's been so much fun having my sweet baby next to me while we rest. I hope I come out of this with two intact eyeballs.
