which was going to be titled - My favorite room in the house - but alas, one long night later, title has changed. :(
Here is what was going to be included in the original post:
Now, for the new post --
Although the Little Man went to sleep on his own last night beautifully, around midnight he awoke with a start! The only explanation I have is that he had a bad dream. Which makes me wonder how a child this young could have a bad dream, or what this bad dream could be about -- a lost pacifier, I can't find mommy...? Regardless, he awoke. After a bit of a cuddle and he had calmed down, we talked about tractors, lawnmowers and edgers, elmo and playing with his friends... he went back to bed and appeared to be heading back to slumberland. About 15 minutes later, a major emergency must have occured down the road -- about 5 mintues of very loud sirens and horns sounded. This was followed by our own little siren, unhappy about being startled out of his state of half-awakeness. Once that was resolved, he went back to bed, a little more awake than before, but appeared to be happy to return to sleep... Then, a neighbor must have returned from a late night job... slamming doors and bright lights in the window... aughhhh.... he was wide awake. It took us about 3 hours to get him back to sleep. He did not think he should have to go back to bed, apparently.
Our streak was broken! :( I hope that we are able to return to our happy little sleeper ASAP! Mommy is TIRED! :)
