One small step...


So you know that we have a 'monster' living in the boys closet, right? Apparently, it has been behaving of late, because our little Jalapeño has settled down some in the going to bed department. Three nights ago, he was in my room in the middle of the night. He was scared he said, and wanted to lay down with me. Well, this is a kid who once you do something with him, it becomes "The Way Things Are Done" and every night, it must be the same. Not wanting to go down that road, I had him go potty, to try and wake him up a bit. Then when he came back to me, I snuggled him a bit and told him to go back to bed. He resisted, of course, but I told him he could leave my door open, and his door open, that way if he was scared, he could see in my room...

He went back to bed, and that was the last I heard from him that night.

Next night, I prayed for deep sleep (for everyone), and when I got up yesterday morning, found that I had slept all night - no little peppers in my room waking me up - wow! I did notice, however, that my door was open, and knew I had closed it the night before, out of habit...

When my little Jalapeño got up, I asked him if he had tried to wake me up. "No", he said. "I got scared and opened your door, and opened my door. I tried to do it quiet, but it was loud! Then I went back to bed." Well, loud it may have been, but it did not wake this Mommy up!

So thanks to those of you who have been praying for my little Jalapeño, God has answered your prayers and we are all thankful!!
