Sleep Wars Volume II
So we spent yesterday morning putting the bed up and nap time went very well. Grayson was tired. I took a nap, too, which proved to be very helpful for the two and a half hour bedtime saga. He just kept getting up and then walking out of the room. After all that time, I think he was just exhausted. About 12:30, he woke up again. He cried and cried. He was up and down on and off until 3:30 or 4:00. I got in bed with him for a couple of minutes and he just finally crashed. I ended up taking all of his toys out of his rooom. They are all over the hall. I think I will just move them to Lillian's room. Too much temptation! He is in his room again. I gave him a couple of cars and books. I have been standing on a stool and looking in the window above his door. He is just on the bed rolling the car back and forth and watching it. He loves to do that. I don't know why I didn't give him something in the bed yesterday. I am hopeful that this will work. We will be hosting our new prayer group for the first time, tonight. I am sure it will be wonderful to do this with an audience. They are both in their rooms and I am off to climb in my bed with two sleep books from Andrea. I am hoping for some helpful tips. I did look back in my blog to 2005 to see that about three days of waring with Lillian worked. I remember feeling like I would lose my mind, but it is encouraging to know that I survived World War I and will likely World War II.
