I kinda forgot to do this last night, and I was kinda too tired when I did kinda remember.
My child has reverted to her infancy, when she wouldn't go to sleep no matter what we tried. Know what I spend 2-3 hours doing EVERY night now? Trying to get her to stay in bed long enough to fall asleep!
I'm going to blame it on our pastor's wife. Two weeks ago in Sunday School, we were talking about parents not having time with each other, who at the same time, let their kids stay up just as late as they do. She admonished us all to put our kids to bed one or two hours before we plan to go to bed, so that we can have time to ourselves or time with our spouse. They have an eight-year-old daughter and a teenage son, and she said their daughter goes to bed at 8:00 p.m. every night.
And I was on the back row, with a hearty, "Amen!" Because I've been putting Anna Marie to bed at a decent time for years, so that I could get some other things accomplished.
Guess what - after that lesson, this kid has given me trouble every single night!
I've resorted to waking her up early, instead of letting her sleep as late as she wants. (Which, by the way, didn't work last night, but will be tried again because we have to get up SUPER early tomorrow morning for her dance recital.) I know it's summer, but the better schedule she keeps now, the less trouble we'll have getting back on track in August.
Oh, that's right - you want to know what I weigh, don't you?
148. Down a half pound from last week, but still a pound away from my all-time low of 147.
But I'm going to get there - never you fear!
If I can survive Anna Marie's second infancy.
