People who say they sleep like a baby usually don't have one!

So, I've been struggling to get my little man back on track with his sleeping habits.  He's always had trouble falling asleep with out someone in his presence or without a night light.  Since we have come back to the USA, he has trouble without having not one or the other,but both.  I KNOW that if I would just give in and lay with him, I would have him asleep in no time, but I refuse to get that started.  I have never been the one to lay with him--Brent has though.  Anyhow, there was one night a few weeks ago that Mason just couldn't stay in his room and after several warnings that if he did not stay in his room, I would turn the TV off, I did.  He was NOT a happy camper with me to say the least and he kept coming out to the living room with a different excuse.  I finally told him to quit coming out or I would have to turn his night light and lamp off, too.  He was so upset and so in want of someone to be with him that he never made it back to his room!  He stopped in MY room and fell asleep in MY bed!  Here's his sweet little face.  I did move him back to his bed in case you all were wondering.  I love my personal space while I am sleeping and to be honest, this is about the only ME time I get all day! 

This is a view of what I saw when I walked into my room.  Poor guy.  He hides uner pillows, blankets, etc., when he has to fall asleep by himself.

Oh and I promise to try and just do small little blogs more ofen here.  I won't even attempt to try and completely back track since my last blog, though.  Miss Sadie will be next!

  1. That's hilarious that he sleeps under pillows & blankets!
    I'm with you on the personal space in the bed, one the VERY rare occasion that one of our kids has been put in the bed with us, I pitch such a fit b/c they were keeping me up that Ryan will put them back into their beds!
    Thanks for the encouraging comment on my blog. Just wanted to let you know that I have my moments of impatience with them and loose my temper often, but I'm working on that!
    You are a very brave and strong mommy to be a single parent while Brent is away, I could never do what you do!
