One Night at a time- or stone.


Ok so here it is for the entire world wide web to see- my thoughts my feelings and what goes on in my every day life as a mother of two.

Last night we tried to put Ethan to bed without one of us laying down with him. Succesful?? Well he screamed, he cried, he got out of bed and yet Sofie stayed asleep through the entire 1 hour battle. So I guess she really isn't a lite sleeper. The trick- I took him a flat stone that I took off of one of my candle displays. I told he was to hold it and that Jesus made it just for him. And I also SAT next to him as he fell alseep. Baby steps people.

I'm not sure that telling him Jesus made the stone just for him was such a good idea. What's gonna happen the day that he realizes there are billions of trillions of stones in the world and that they're not all for him. he might want to sleep with all of them and then become one of those weird tree people that live in the woods, don't shave and eat raw deer meat. Hmm, well at least he'll be fun to watch at family gatherings. :-)
