Monkey Business

While we're on the topic of kid funnies, last night Kate gave us a cute one. We are experimenting with the bedroom situations at our house. Halle keeps getting scared in her room and either hopping into bed with Alyssa or coming into our room, thus causing nobody to get a good night's rest. So we let Kate and Halle switch bedrooms last night to see if it would help.

Kate was so excited about being downstairs with Alyssa. Jarom told her that it was bedtime and there was to be no monkey business. So as I'm taking Kate down to get her tucked in, she stops dead in her tracks and says, "Wait!" (as she's rummaging through her pillowcase), "I've got a little bit of monkey business in here." Sure enough, she pulled out a toy harmonica.

Alyssa reported that she had to go in and read some books to Kate before she really settled down, but she did sleep all night and didn't get scared. AND Halle slept all night in Kate's room. We'll have to try this a few more times to see if it's going to be a solution to our night time woes.

We did the "Great Bedroom Switch-a-Roo" here over the summer. We have 3 bedrooms in our house, 3 boys, and 2 girls. The two oldest boys have taken over the family room on the opposite side of the house- with it's 3/4 bath. The girls were given the boys' bigger bedroom, and the youngest boy was given the girls' smaller bedroom. Now, the boys have their own bathrrom for the morning rush, the girls and the baby share a bathroom, and the baby- who is 5 years old- has no one in his bedroom to keep awake at night! Everyone is happy!
