- Never having to consult with anyone else before making decisions
- Being able to do things with DS on a whim or spur of the moment without having to factor in someone else coming home from work/needing supper/needing to be informed
- My decisions on discipline are final. DS can't use the "but dad said I could/always lets me.." arguments that I used to use with my parents
- There's enough room in my big bed for DS to cuddle up to me in the early hours
I'm sure there are more, I'll add them as I think of them...
What are yours?
