Who slept in her own bed for the very first time and for the whole night long?
She woke up just before 8 and found me still lying in my bed -with Gray- our bed isn't completely kid-free just yet (he had a "bad dream").
She asked for nah nap right away. And I said You slept in your bed all night! And she said nah nap. And I said do you want some breakfast? And she said nah nap. And I said how about some milk in a cup? And she said nah nap. And I said I love you so much! And she said nah nap.
Confession: I did nurse her once after we got back from Vegas. It had been over a week since she'd "weaned" and yet she still asked for it sometimes. I gave in but I knew that was [probably] the last time. I haven't given in since. I just keep telling her my nah nap is all gone. I almost feel guilty about it but I don't. I just feel like it's time.
Anyway, so I just snuggled with her and said no nah nap. Let's go get breakfast. And she said make me a bagel with cream cheese and a chai.*
I am over the moon about the new sleeping arrangements. I was absolutely giddy last night checking on her after she fell asleep. She was actually the one that initiated bedtime. She crawled in her My Princess Hello Kitty Firetruck bed and was like, time for bed, boys! And now I'm totally prepared for sending them off to college or art school or downtown apartment or backpacking in Europe someday because that's what it felt like, choking on the tears as I saw Noah off to his own room downstairs. I still tucked him in.
*I am not saying that to be funny. She really did say this. And I really did make it for her, of course.
