Mome reads Mommy, My daughter's way to spell it when she was younger... It stuck. My son calls me Mome... just like it looks. I now sign all my notes to them "Love, Mome". It's our inside secret and makes them smile. I always want them to smile.

Sleepless Nights

Puddin Pop and I are both sporting dark circles under our eyes. I think I created fear in my child that is affecting her after she falls asleep at night. For the past three nights she been half sleeping and crying about something we can't decipher at the time and that she doesn't remember in the morning.

Last night I fell asleep with Boog in his bed and heard Hubster calling me to help with PP. Along with the crying she decided to throw up all over herself and our bed. He handled sheets and I handled giving PP a bath. I brought her downstairs and she fell asleep on the couch.

I had been joking (sort of) about not wanting her to turn 4. Could this be the fear she is experiencing in the dark of night? I would hate to think that it's something I caused but would feel relief if we knew what it was so we could attempt to reassure her. I need some sleep. Maybe the universe is just trying to show me how ridiculous my wish of keeping the kids little is. We're supposed to be beyond the sleepless nights, right?

Point taken.

I will willingly and lovingly allow my daughter to turn four...and five...and six.

Now can we all get some sleep?

  1. Sorry she is having such a rough time! We went through that with my daughter around the same age. She never did tell me what was bothering her! But it did pass!!
