Grandma and Grandpa had our Princess Saturday afternoon. She did NOT want mommy and daddy at all that day. So when it was time to come home we were not surprised that she wanted to stay with them. I was hesitant though, because I was tired, and I felt like she was going to cry for me at 11pm and I didn’t want to be woken up.
She has never stayed the night with the grandparents. She has not even slept a whole night in their bed when they slept over. Every night of her life has been spent right next to me. I have been wanting her to sleep in her own bed for awhile now and been craving for the day when I could sleep alone. Not getting squished, crammed, kicked, poked, and pushed. We let her try it.
For about five minutes I actually really missed her next to me! I know, I must be going crazy. I have been complaining forever about her in my bed. But when you have been doing something for a year and half, it is hard still. But after I realized how much room I had in bed, I was happy. My dear husband stayed on his little space and I just spread out.
And slept good. REALLY GOOD. And at 8:25 am, I woke up and called Grandpa. The Princess fell asleep in about 3 minutes and slept all night. She didn’t cry for me once. When she woke up at 8am she saw Grandpa and smiled. Happily awake for the day!
Can you believe it? Man! My Princess is definitely growing up. Now, I am all about her staying over once a week 🙂
