Last night, the 2nd night of our No-O-In-Our-Bedroom Mission was a success. DH came in after watching 48 Hours or Dateline or 20/20 and I had the light off already, so I think that might have helped me with sleeping. At midnight, the little pitter patter of O’s feet drew my attention. Before she even made it around the bed, I took her by the hand, and took her back to her bed. She cried a little bit. For about 10 minutes, but she fell asleep.
O’s main concern was that if she sleeps in her room, who would wake her up in the morning. We explained that she doesn’t need to worry about it since we will make sure to wake her up.
But never fear, this morning, she was the first one up. And she was the first to declare that Mommy, Daddy, I slept in my room by MYSELF!
We are so proud of her, and told her so! She is 6 more nights closer to her Barbie! Or a she asked for, A Blue Mermaid (aka Ariel!)
