The entire time we were in California, Grammy made it her job to put Bailey and Grace to bed each night. Now these two STILL sleep in my bed so I told my mom it was pointless to try putting them in their own beds at her house. But~She wanted to try anyhow.I of course thought..whatever..go for it you crazy fool!
She would take them upstairs, have a prayer with them and then she would sing three or four songs. The girls would cry and tell her that they wanted to sleep with me. Every time they began to cry grammy would do this kind of growl thing and tell them no crying at grammy's house or she would tell them to open up their bawlers (mouths) and she would put her fingers in and tell them she was taking out the bawlers and they couldn't cry anymore!
Now I think she probably scared the living crap out of them but they actually slept in those beds every single night that we were there! Impressive!
So Sunday night we get home and put them in their own beds and they are so exhausted that they fall asleep instantly! Wow!
Last night we finish setting up their room. We had only one bed up so we finished the bunk bed, put sheets on them, added the princess pillows and put all the toys into place.
At bed time I told Tony to have family prayer in their room and then he sang songs to them and tucked them in bed. We went to the other room waiting...expecting them to come crying at any moment! But~they never came!
After about 10 minutes Tony looks at me with a shocked expression and says "can you believe this? They went to bed in their own beds! Is this a Magical house?"
I replied "nope, Grammy is!"
