Posts Tagged ‘Sleep’

Russ and I were up late last night talking about how our kids have each had such a different sleeping pattern. Colten has ALWAYS been our night owl and we remember spending hours each night rocking him to sleep. To this day, Colten has a hard time going to bed at night. Chase was a little easier, he would just fall asleep in bed with me EVERY night and I would move him into his bed.  Chase has no problem falling asleep wherever he lands now.  Kenzie has been our easiest of all. She has always loved her sleep and will actually get herself ready and ask to go to bed. We never have issues with nap times, she is always more than happy to go and lay down. At our age, we are grateful for this each night, makes the routine so much easier to get the boys ready. The only downfall now is to get her to stop wondering in at all hours of the night, or at least to find daddies side of the bed for a change.

Today was a little different for us. Russ had told her that when she woke up, he would take her to buy a new movie. She went right to bed knowing that when she woke up, she would get to go. She wondered down the stairs about 45 minutes after we has laid her down. I caught a glimpse of her out of the corner of my eye and she was going into Chase’s bedroom, which is scray enough without being half way asleep. I gave her about five minutes and went to see what she was up too, she was being a little to quite. I was shocked to find her curled up and asleep in his closet. She has never been a sleep walker. I let her sleep for another hour and she wondered in the office a little confused. I told her she fell asleep in Chases closet and she gave me a sly little smile and started to laugh and then started to tell me that “her daddy was taking her to the store to buy a new movie”. She  must have been dreaming about it, woke up, came down to get Russ and got confused on her way down. I am just glad I got the camera to show her.
