So I found this picture and thought it was hilarious, mainly because Claire and I adopt Sleeping Positions #2 and #3 many nights. I have woken up in the morning thinking that I'm cuddling with her head only to find that I've actually been cuddling with her butt. [This is the "not so great" part]. Lately I've found myself sleeping horizontally because she tends to sprawl out horizontally - right in the middle of my bed [see photo below].
People sometimes ask me why I don't kick her out and make her sleep somewhere else. The answer is: I don't want to. Although there are nights where I might be in a not-so-comfortable position, I adapt - because I'm still more comfortable knowing that she's right next to me. You know how little kids have their safety blanket? Claire just happens to be mine. And it works.
