No Wonder it Took so Long to Fall Asleep!
It’s always a good idea to just peek in on your kids really quick before you go to bed. Doesn’t hurt anything and there might find some surprises that would be good to know sooner rather than later. For instance…we put our girls to bed at 8:00 last night. As they sometimes do lately, they talked with each other (more like lots of squealing and laughing mixed with a little singing) for a good hour. We didn’t go in to tell them to be quiet because at this age staying up a little late doesn’t really affect their following day because they still take naps. And I would say it’s about a 50/50 thing as far as checking on them before we go to bed. Berlin has always been such a light sleeper that a lot of the times she will wake up and cry and it seems more worth it to just not go in there. Well, last night I just happen to need to get some blankets out of their room, as Tryn had peed on our bed during a time-out during the day yesterday (she has not had an accident in months and I honestly think she was trying to rebel against the babysitter, stinker). Anyway, I opened the door and got out the blankets, oh so quietly. Then I decided to go over to Tryn’s bed to put a blanket on her and, lo and behold, I find her sound asleep, buck-naked. Actually, she did have her socks on still. It’s quite hysterical, as a parent, to go look at your child only to find something completely unexpected…and really funny. Ah, kids. Thankfully, I found her before there was yet another wet accident on a bed.
