Sleeping On The Floor NOT Fun At My Age

It's about 6 a.m. and the floor has got too hard to be comfortable, so I may as well make use of the time to write here. I would have used a photo of my feet under the covers to show I really am on the floor but there is not enough light for the camera on my tablet to get even a blurry outline and it doesn't have a flash. So why am I lying on the floor? I'm glad you asked! No, I haven't been kicked out by my husband, nor do I have a bad back. (Well, not yet, but the floor is working on it.) I have a small foam sofa bed. It's supposed to be single bed size but it's not and the foam is quite thin. My eldest granddaughter doesn't like sleeping alone and I think it's time she learned, so I am keeping her company by sleeping on the floor beside her bed. I can't even sneak out back to my own bed, she wakes up. Just sitting up now, to ease the aches!

Poor you. Hope you get a better sleeping alternative.

How is she ever going to learn to be in a room on her own with Grandma on the floor? Go back to bed and let her parents deal with the situation before you do have a bad back.

Not for me either, especially to sleep on a single bed with one other person.

MegL I am sending you a brochure for a tibetan monk crash course so you use it next time before embarking on such challenges emoticon :winking: LOL. Hope your granddaughter get used to sleeping along soon.

Oh goodness, that sounds horrible. My brother used to sleep on the floor because of his back, but I can't even figure out how that could help. It's so uncomfortable! You need an air mattress.

You're a better person than I am! I could never sleep on the floor and if I could get down that far, I would never be able to get up again without some major help!

What a devoted Grandma. I hope your plan works.

Actually to tell you honestly, we are sleeping on the floor. But of course not necessarily plain floor. With bedsheets but without bed.
