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!!!
