All Mixed Up
We've been having some trouble getting the girls to go to sleep for naptimes and bedtimes. You wouldn't believe the amount of screaming and giggling that comes from their room after lights out. When I say lights out, I mean pitch black. If there is any light they don't sleep, they play. So after several weeks of us having to get very angry before they finally lay down and go to sleep, we decided Friday night to just leave them be until they finally put themselves to sleep. Before Jonathan went to sleep he went back to check on them. He came back and told me that Julia was asleep, but Amelia was standing at the door and seemed very confused, but he put her to bed and we didn't hear another peep out of them - until 1:00am. That's when I heard a kiddo whining at her door. I opened the door and saw Julia standing there - but her bed was already occupied. Yup. It was Amelia that Jonathan saw sleeping in Julia's bed, but because his eyes weren't adjusted yet, he just assumed it was Julia. When I tried to lay Julia down in Amelia's bed, she pointed down at the mattress and said, "Bed?" in her cute little confused voice. "I know this is Sissy's bed," I told her, "but she's sleeping in your bed, so you'll have to sleep in hers." I guess she just needed to hear that it was okay because she finished off the night there.
