Sleep Walking

I had a whole post almost written when I went to check on Makenzie. She was wide awake in bed at 10pm. I am not really sure if she even fell asleep but I never heard a peep out of her in the monitor after I laid her down to bed.

I rolled her over and she gave me the big pouty face so I laid down with her. I closed my eyes and fell asleep. At 3am I popped straight up in bed. In the moment I had no clue what time it was but I knew I hadn't started Makenzie's water nor given her night meds. I turned and looked at Makenzie and there she was again looking right at me WIDE awake.

I rolled her over and got up to get her stuff ready hoping she would go back to sleep.... or maybe just to sleep period. No such luck. So I crawled back into bed with her. I gave her meds and held her until she finally fell asleep. I was able to start her water and sneak out of the room.

I have debated for the last hour whether or not to go back to bed. I have to be up in 2 hours to get the boys off to school and I really don't want to wake Makenzie up with my alarm clock so I guess I will stay up. It is going to be a LONG day!

I am going to let Makenzie sleep until she wakes up. I am not sure she will be going to school this morning but I need her to get her water and sleep! Pretty funny timing as I am sure school will question why she really  is not  there after what happened on Friday. Funny stuff but oh well..... life happens!

The prayer for today is to simply be able to make it through without falling asleep standing up!

Believe... Prayer Works!
