Night Night

Eden has been sick with a cold the last few days. Since she is a binky-sucker, it makes sleeping difficult. She can't breathe through her mouth and suck the bink at the same time. None of us has had really good sleep for a few days. Whenever she is lacking in sleep she seems to get really restless and struggles to take good naps or sleep well at night for a few days. So it has been.

Last night after Phil left for meetings we were playing in her room. I was reading a book to her and she was ignoring me and playing with toys. Then she turned on her sound machine, pointed to the humidifier (we've been running for her congestion) and said, "on." Then she laid down on the floor and said "night night." It was 6:00 p.m. I said, "don't you want a bath first?" She then hopped up and ran into the bathroom and pointed to the faucet and said, "on." She took her bath, drank her milk, brushed her teeth, read her scripture stories, had prayers and a couple of songs all by 6:20.

It is now 8:00 a.m. and I can hear her in her room "singing." A good night's sleep at last...

Yeah for sleep. Wait until you have two kids that are sick! Too much fun! I love what you wrote under "Leave your comment." I don't know that Chris totally understands the "communication with the outside world." I read you blog, but I don't always comment because I usually have one kid in my arm and makes it hard to type!

Hooray for a good nights sleep! It sure makes everyone's day a little better!

Love, love, LOVE the poll.

But, why didn't you put the "I did a victory dance around the kitchen the night Phil asked me out when I thought no one could hear me, forgetting that Heidi was just upstairs listening to the whole thing" option?

Good times.

(the Eden story is pretty good as well)
