Sleeping with a Baby

OK...it's 3am and I'm still awake. Why? Because my son refuses to sleep on his own mattress on the floor. Forget putting him in his own room, he'll scream the house down. Asian parents are usually guilty of sleeping with their children in the room, on the bed etc. I slept in my parents room till I was about 12 years old or thereabouts.

I did however, sleep on a mattress on the floor. My son wants to sleep with us. Unfortunately he's getting too big. I don't like being kicked and head butted every night. I am a light sleeper and I need my own space and some peace and quiet. For some reason my son doesn't head butt my husband. Huh?? Why me?? Whatever the reason it is irritating the hell out of me and stressing me out. I cannot continue like this. My sleep is suffering therefore my work is also suffering and my health to a certain extent (I'm too damn tired to exercise).

So how do I handle this? I seriously do not know. I'm just too tired to force him to sleep on his own. When I go back to bed, he just climbs in again. He's almost 2 years old, soon he'll just push me off the bed :-/
