One of those nights

Usually Morgan goes to bed just fine, we pray, read, sing a song and then she goes to sleep. But occasionally she has her nights where she refuses to lay down, screams for an hour or an hour and a half, we let her get up for 10 minutes and then do our routine again and she goes to sleep.

Last night however, this didn't work. So after putting her to bed for the third time she asked if I would take her mattress off the bed and put it on the floor; she's never asked me to do this before. (You may ask where she would get this from, she has a friend whose father would take the mattress off the bed and let the kids jump on it.) So in desperation I did it and after a quick book and refusing to let her jump and play she was asleep within 10 minutes.

Kids are so funny!!!

I thought of you last night at 3am as I was trying to snuggle two boys on the couch to get them to go to sleep. I guess I need to change things up and actually create a routine.

Funny girl, but whatever works.
