obedient sleep

I have 4 children.
One of those 4 has always been very obedient. When we transitioned out of a crib to a bed this child would stay in that bed in the morning until we woke up and got said child out of bed. Sometimes this child would call for us in the morning, but it was a long while until said child got out of bed on their own.

Of the 4 children only Tucker has been a good napper. Its such an amazing thing- I had no idea what I was missing with the other 3!

Now I can say I have an obedient child who is also a napper.

For the first year Tuck slept with us. Now he is in a crib. Tucker was struggling a little to go upstairs to take a nap. I offered to let him sleep in Luke's bed, (since anything Luke does, he wants to do) but told him he had to stay in it. He said "tay"- and he did it. He sleeps as I type.

Oh my gosh! How sweet is a sleeping child.

That is so precious - I have a rule follower too - it's kinda refreshing!

We had to wean Carson off of his nap the summer between Kindergarten and 1st Grade!! Maybe Tucker will be like that too!

Oh the joys of obedient children. Ruby is trying my patience this week. What a precious picture of sleeping Tucker. Plus, I haven't ever told you that I love his little name. And I miss you. You probably didn't ever know that either. Hill

LOVE a napping child...mine was a great napper. In fact, we had to wean her off when she was in Kindergarden. She was NOT ready to give it up!

Good nappers are a true gift.
