Kids Know



I swear, kids somehow know and come through for us when it counts.
I had to do a 5am (!) conference call a couple of days ago. I wouldn’t have minded staying up well past midnight to do the call, because I usually go to bed late anyway, but we had other parties calling in from the US, from different parts of Europe, Australia, and Asia that that was the best time that could be arranged.
Anyway, I was worried that Zoë might wake up in the middle of the night and crawl into bed with us OR worse, ask me to sleep with her on her bed. She does sleep through the night, in her room, on her own bed –about 3-4 times a week. Other nights, she wants me –only me, –to sleep with her.
I’d set the alarm for 4:45am. I was worried that if I’d had to sleep with her that the alarm would wake her up, too and then I wouldn’t have been able to do the telecon in peace. I needed my wits about me for this super early call; it was all I could do to even be awake when it was pitch black outside.
Well, what do you know, she slept through! So I had a proper good night’s sleep. Not only that –-Zoë didn’t wake up until my telecon finished at 7am! She normally wakes up between 6-6:30am.
Maybe it was just luck. But maybe she knew.

I just love when that happens! Maybe she somehow, instinctly knew that you needed her to sleep in a bit. She is just beautiful...both of your kids are.

I think it's true. I remember after #2 was born, the night before my first day back at work was the first night he slept through the night. Beautiful photo!
