sleeping. or not.

aregash's first night home

we are in the midst of a power struggle right now.  
 and she has chosen sleep to try to control.
 things are off-kilter and this is what she does.
 it doesn't matter how tired she is.....
she won't do it.
 i lay her down for a nap and 2-3 hours later i return to find her
with black, baggy bags under her eyes.

we've been through this before.
eventually she will wear down.
or will i?

soon after returning home-in dreamland

when she's on she's on
and she will sleep 12 hours through the night
and take a 2-4 hour nap.
she's a good sleeper.
i can't remember how long this lasted the last time.
i'm tired for her.
just sleep.
just do it.

I'm so sorry Kendra! Hang in there and I hope she starts sleeping soon. There is nothing worse then sleep deprivation for everyone involved! Praying for you guys!
