A couple weekends ago, our sister and brother-in-law came to visit with our almost 3 year old nephew.
Our house is not huge, so we had to figure out sleeping arrangements for him. We decided to give him #1’s room and the girls would share #2’s room. #1 got a queen air mattress on the floor…the girls thought it was a bounce house!
The first night went okay. #2 was asleep before we put #1 to bed. This was the best option.
The next two nights? Not so great.
#2 screamed a lot. She kept saying "no, no, no, no, no" and then screaming it.
#1 was yelling through the door "mommy, #2’s awake." "Mommy, #2’s crying." It.was.fun.
Despite my better judgment, I brought #1 in our room. She said "Mommy, it’s too loud in there."
Touché, #1, touché.
She proceeded to kick me, poke me and mess with me. And, even with all of this, #2 was still screaming her head off. She finally passed out, so I brought a very awake #1 back into the room to sleep.
They sure are cute when they work together and help each other. But, man this sleeping in the same room business is tough.
That Monday, we found out #2 had a double ear infection, so maybe that was part of it. And, hopefully, when we give the room sharing a go again, it will go much better.
Tell me it will go better, please!
