We thought Elizabeth might like to have a practice sleepover with Auntie Janice prior to baby's arrival. It's not that Elizabeth has to change her sleeping arrangements, but if the disappearance of her parents leaves her feeling lonely we thought maybe a somewhat familiar alternative would be helpful.

 

Elizabeth was very much looking forward to the sleepover until about noon on Sunday, when she abruptly decided she "wanted to sleep in her own bed" because "she would miss her mommy and it might be dark". Never mind that Mommy would be right upstairs instead of across the hall. Never mind that Elizabeth usually sleeps in the dark.

 

She got increasingly anxious about the whole concept throughout the next day and we weren't at all sure she would go through with it. But the time came and although Elizabeth was tearfully and rather desperately telling me that she "wasn't going to have a sleepover", a few minutes later Auntie Janice managed to coax her downstairs to just "take a look at the bed". Then Elizabeth was convinced to lie down. Then she agreed to stay for a story and song...

 

Despite phone calls and squeaky lion falling out of bed, she slept peacefully all night until Auntie Janice's alarm clock went off. Turns out that while Janice can sleep through her alarms, Elizabeth cannot...

Little brother's due date is the 14th of February but he will likely arrive a little early.
