My son is 6 and still likes to sleep in my bed (I'm a single mom, so there is no one else in the bed). I don't mind him sleeping with me, but some of the comments and looks I get from others when they hear he still sleeps in bed w/ me make me wonder if I'm making the right choice. He can spend the night w/ Grandma and Grandpa just fine, he has no problems going camping w/ Grandpa and the cub scouts, he can play independently and goes to school just fine, so I don't feel it's giving him any seperation anxiety, or dependency issues. And besides, there will come a time soon enough I'm sure when I will be "Mom" not "Mommy" and I won't be the coolest person ever, so I kind of enjoy the extra snuggly time we get, because I know it won't last forever. Just wondering how other real life moms feel on the topic???
