"It Hurts to Sleep on My Curly Hair"

Curious about that title? Well there's a funny story behind it. I haven't been able to get to any of the creations floating around in my head lately, so I thought I'd share this cute story instead.

If you remember, this was my oldest daughter's bedroom before she got married. Well, tonight I was putting my two grand daughters to sleep in this very room. Whenever this happens, I always lay on the floor, with my pillow, at the foot of the bed until they fall asleep. It's just a routine we've gotten into.

So tonight little Miss (G) [who is four] was especially wiggly and restless. She says to her big sister (C), " (C), I'm having a bad dream." Then big sister says to me, "Nana, G. is having a bad dream." To which I Laugh-Out-Loud and say, "Hee-hee, that's impossible G., because you haven't even fallen asleep yet." Then Miss (G) informs me, "Nana, I'm serious!" With my heartstrings pulled, I said, "Okay, I'm sorry...you can bring your pillow down here by me and we'll sleep together."
So, here comes the good part...As she was getting all comfortable next to me and still being a little bit wiggly she said, "It hurts to sleep on my curly hair." I tried not to laugh out loud again, but it was hard. : ) Then, she asked if she could hold my hand and was out like a light in about two minutes. I LOVE being a Nana!!!
For your enjoyment and viewing pleasure...Little Miss G's curls:







And by the way, if you want the most beautiful music EVER to put your children to bed with, try the suggestion I picked up from the Nie-Nie and Courtney-Jane blogs. Thoroughly and completely wonderful!!!

Mistress Curlie Q is darling - but her Nana is the one who has my heart. AND - how 'bout I pay you to come and decorate for Easter at my house? I'm thinkin' I could never decorate as cute as you can....sigh. So talented and so sweet!

Thank you so much for bringing a smile to my face. Your granddaughter is the most precious thing. What a blessing she must be to you!! I babysit a sweet little four year old girl and I could probably write a book with all the funny things she says. Don't you just love their innocence. :)

At first I thought this was going to be someone trying to sleep in curlers. I tried that once - NEVER AGAIN.
