When I was a child my bedroom was unique because I shared it with my mom, the space in the room and the view.

My mom and I were sharing the room when my dad died. We slept together in the same bed so it was very good because I wasn't scared anymore at night time and my mom hugged me when I was sleeping.

Then when my mother was working during the day I pretended I was the lady of the house because the room was huge and had only the bed in it. I had a lot of space to play and made my own little house with the blankets of the bed.

Finally the view of the bedroom was the thing I liked most because in the morning the sun came in through the window, and warmed up the room. Outside in the street the neighbors were sweeping the part of the street in front of their houses.

Because I was sharing the room with my mom, the huge space in the bedroom was my space to play, and because the view of the room every day, my bedroom was unique and spectacular to me.

Hello Graciela; The first think I want to tell you is I'm sorry for your father and your mather. I did the same think I slept with my mom until I was 21 years old and wath about my dad? He was engry and I went to sleep to my room. That time it was very sweet for me, for that reason my son sleep with me, just for a few more months not for 21 years.

Graciela, I undertand you perfectly. All time when kids sleep with their parents they feel great and protected.
It's nice that you could share those moments with your mom, moments that never come back again.

Esperanza, thank you for your comment, as you said sleeping with my mother after my father die make me feel protected and secure, I think that's one of the reasons I miss my mother a lot, and because she was the only one in who I trusted.
