I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase, “Sleeping like an angel.” I remember my mom saying it’s a good thing three year olds look so cute when they are asleep otherwise you’d be tempted to throw in the towel based on their awake behavior.
Both phrases apply to our Desta. We are back in the routine (thank you morning light!) of Desta coming into our room at 15 minute intervals, beginning around 5 am. We’ve attempted all forms of bribery, including a dancing pink Barbie. Unfortunately, the will of that child to have the entire household awake early morning prevails over such trivial things as plastic Barbies.
Last night, after a particularly LONG day, I checked in on Desta before I headed to bed. It amazes me that this child really does sleep this way. No hand placement by a parent, no repositioning for the photo, nope. This is how she’s slept since she’s been home with us.
I now get my mom’s saying. She is so darn cute when she’s asleep. I guess I can put up with another day of limited sleep, loud tantrums and some playing with Holly Pockets (Desta insists that’s what they are called!)
Happy Tuesday people!
