Tonight was the end of year gymnastics showcase. Last year Cami was so uncomfortable that she wouldn't leave the coach's side. She helped him lead the class in stretches and stayed next to him most of the time. This year she was comfortable to the point that I couldn't get her to stop being silly. Most of the video I got is of her giving me a silly face. She did great and was THRILLED to get her medal. Her daddy came and that was the highlight of the night b/c she thought he wasn't going to get to come. YAY for Cami! Of course, bedtime was an issue AGAIN! She was so overstimulated that she couldn't calm her little body down. So she is once again in my bed (I know, it's becoming a horrible habit) and just now got to sleep. I dread getting her up in the morning...eek!

So what is the big deal about going to bed? Since Cami was 7 weeks old we have read 2 books, said prayers, rocked for a little bit, and boom, good night she went. Now that she is 6 years old, it is an issue. I don't get it. I love going to bed and think about it right when I get out of bed in the morning, "I can't wait to go to bed tonight, I'm tired!" Kids are so scared they might miss something so they fight it. All she is missing is Dateline and a possible phone conversation here and there. Tonight, although exhausted, she JUST went to sleep a little before 9:00 which is late for her. My girl needs about 11 hours of sleep a night to be sweet. "Mama, I need water." "Mama, my ear hurts." "Mama, can I sleep in your bed?" "Mama, can I read a book?" "Mama, I read a book about tornados and now I'm scared there might be one." "Mama, I can't sleep." "Mama, I'm hungry." So, she IS in my bed, I cratered! She knows I will move her to her bed when I go to bed. I'm not usually a push over, but tonight I failed. Okay, guess that's it for my first blog. How did I do??
