Jeff and I always check on Austin before we go to sleep. We crack open his door and use the light of our cell phones to peek in his crib. Most nights, we stay for just a minute and he doesn't stir at all. Every once in a while, though, he wakes up. Tonight when we went into his room, he sat up in his crib, rubbing his eyes and whining a little. I wish there had been a video camera there to capture the rest of the scene. When we realized he was awake, we clutched our phones to our stomachs to hide the light and dove to the floor. We squatted there for a few minutes until we were sure he was back asleep. While I was hiding on the floor, I started giggling thinking about how silly we must look.
The things we do to preserve our kids' sleep.
