Sharing a room has so far gone quite well!
We compromised on the bunk bed because Shayla really
wanted to keep her bed.
We talked about how I shared, a bed even, with my sister(s)
and how much fun we had talking before we feel asleep.
At one point she said, Mom if Tristan wakes up in the night
I will just go cuddle with him so he feels better and you don't
have to because it's hard for you with your big belly.
So far she hasn't batted an eyelid when he's woken up and
fussed in the night.)
I think these new toy boxes also really helped!
Thanks to Ryan for his beautiful handiwork.
And I finally finished Tristan's wall letters.
So yeah it's been great so far.
Even going to bed has been pretty easy most nights.
Probably because we have been putting Tristan to bed first
and waiting until he is asleep to put Shayla to bed.
Except tonight when I decided to try at the same time.
I thought they were both pretty tuckered out.
After singing many songs and laying with each kid and
coming back in the room a couple of times. I finally said,
You can choose to stay awake for a bit or go to sleep but
Mom is shutting the door and not coming back in here.
I could hear both of them talking and moving around.
And then I heard Shayla start shouting for her Dad to come lay.
(Clayton, who was out in the garden, told me later that she was sticking
her hand out the window and everything.)
Tristan was shouting too.
After a while I couldn't really hear Shayla anymore just Tristan randomly making
noise and toys crashing to the floor. There was no crying so I didn't go in right away but finally my curiosity got the better of me.
When I peeked in, there was Tristan standing up on the front of Shayla's bed playing with her toys.
I couldn't see Shayla anywhere.
As I got closer, I could see her cuddled under the covers, Tristan's feet straddling her head.
She was sound asleep!
Guess she won't be waking up in the night when Tristan's cries!
Oh and Happy 2nd Birthday Tristan
little nudist hippy who tried his darnedest
to strip down buck naked at the park
to run through the sprinklers.
Love ya little buddy!
