PSF - All I want for Christmas is a KING size bed!

2 overly exhausted adults + 2 flailing children in a queen size bed do not make for a good night's sleep.

This picture was taken about a year and half ago while we were staying at a hotel. We actually had set up mini-airbeds for the kids. Lightning McQueen for Noah and Disney Princesses for Abby. Still they ended up in bed with us.

Like they still do...every.single.night.

Two o'clock in the morning hits, and it's like an internal alarm goes off inside their little heads, and at least one of them, usually Noah, comes running into our room.

The way that those kiddos toss and turn, I'm surprised that I haven't woken up with a black eye. Seriously.

So, Santa, if you could manage to squeeze a king-sized mattress down the chimney this year, I would SO appreciate it.

Come on Kelli--you don't need a king size bed, you just need to get tough. Don't you watch Super Nanny? I'll let you borrow my husband for a week. He made me be tough and I will forever thank him. Our kids know to NOT get out of bed until the sun wakes up:)

Enjoy it while it lasts. :) But I promise a king size bed still gets plenty full.

we suffered all through the little kid years with a full size bed. When we got our king it was like I dead and went to heaven--I don't even know my husband is there. It is great! If you want to wander down my road I’m home.

my oldest daughter used to climb into my bed all the time... and i imagine my little ones will too once they are out of cribs. we have a king size bed though and let me tell you, it doesn't make a difference. they still take up all the room! :)

We have a king size bed and I think I would need TWO if my kids tried to get in bed with me! I need my space...and sleep! :)

Oh that would be SO not cool! I moved myself in to the twins room when they were little to avoid them in our bed.... it worked we very rarely end up with them in bed!
Hope Santa hears your pleas and can feel your pain and come through with the KING size!

Oh, I remember those days. My oldest daughter use to climb into bed with me all the time, but the I slept in her bed, and a little while later she'd follow me and eventually she just stayed in her bed. Sure hope Santa here's your wish.
