So my plan of not making Norah nap and putting her to bed early – not so great. Yes, she did fall asleep right away. However, around 11:30 I woke to BOING, BOING, BOING. I went into her room and she was JUMPING! I told her to lay down and go to sleep – it is still night time. I go back to bed, fall back to sleep (which is an accomplishment in itself since I have been dealing with insomnia for about 2 months now) and I wake up at 12:30 a.m. to BOING, BOING, BOING. She was jumping again!!! This time, I went into her room and laid her down and walked out. I think she fell back to sleep pretty quickly. I, on the otherhand, was awake until 2. So, now I am EXHAUSTED! Norah woke up with a cold – which for her means extra breathing treatments. So, we will try to get in 4 today.
I am going to remember Isaiah 40:31 “Even youths grow tired and weary and young men stumble and fall. But those who hope in the Lord with renew their strength. They will run and not grow weary, walk and not be faint.”
So I guess this is a good Thoughts for Thursday topic. Do your kids do crazy things in the night? Do they still nap at 3 1/2? How about insomnia – anyone been there? If so, any suggestions!!
