Kent was gone last Thursday through Sunday. And we've been having issues with Jesse and him sleeping through the night. As in, he doesn't. Ever. He usually comes over to our bed between midnight and 1. And then spends the rest of the night tossing and turning and kicking and waking us up. I had a particularly rough night with him on Thursday night. As in 2 separate tantrums at 2 different times in the middle of the night.
So on Friday night I decided to try something different partly because of Jesse, but also because I knew Meredith would love it.
On Friday night the 3 of us camped out in our living room and watched a movie and then had a slumber party there.
On Saturday night we did the same thing, except in my bedroom (so I could sleep in my own bed).
Jesse slept longer than usual on the floor on his own "bed" and Meredith LOVED it. As soon as I told her what we were doing on Friday, she hugged me and called me the best mom in the world...
I'm thinking I should be taking more advantage of her getting excited about things that are so easy to do!
