Andrew is the little Boss of the house. He’s been kicking our butts for months. Tonight he had me over the ropes with his screaming and crying about not going to bed. He was put to bed early, he fell asleep during his last feeding of the night and I was relieved. On Tuesday’s Allison knits so I am home with the kids and Eva usually makes a fuss or wants me to stay with her for a while. We’re tying to get her to sleep on her own. She drags out her bedtime whenever she can. But she went to sleep without issue, however Andrew woke right up.
The only thing that would get Andrew back to sleep was standing, holding him in my arms swaying back and forth and bouncing up and down while saying “Shhh Shhh Shhh”. I had to do this about five times. Finally, he wore himself out but I didn’t dare go back downstairs for fear of a stray creaking waking him up once again.
Of course, before he cowed me into hiding in my bedroom Andrew charmed everyone at lunch at TGI Fridays. We went there to have lunch with Grandma and Grandpa as well as Aunt Candy. He had everyone cooing and laughing and smiling. Little charmer.
He may be a challenge but he’s also such a little love.
