Last night, some of our friends came over and we had a See You Later party. It’s hard not to cry thinking about when I will see you later. I know I’m not falling off the face of the earth and I know I’m staying in the same country, but things won’t be the same again. I won’t be able to hang out with you whenever I want anymore. I will have to travel halfway across the country in order to see you. Moving is so hard!
Anyways, last night we had a cookout and swimming. It was so much fun! We should have done this more often. I feel like these girls get me and they are so encouraging to stay connected and strong in the Lord, but also so real about life. Thank you for your friendship!
On the other end of the fun spectrum, Mackenzie woke up four times last night! I think that is a record. Before, I thought they weren’t night terrors because she remembered them. Now, I’m not quite convinced that all of them aren’t. When I got up with her at 5:30 and 6:30, I couldn’t tell if she was fully awake or not. Her eyes were kinda glazed over and she wasn’t looking me in the eye. Both times she talked about how she was in a car by herself and then we were with her, but she slipped out because she wanted to be with us. So strange. I feel so bad for her. Not only are we not getting sleep, but it’s exhausting for her to be so emotional. Fear takes a lot out of you. I know that night terrors and nightmares are super common at three years old, but every night, multiple times a night? Is that normal? It has been every night for over a month.
I just pray for protection over Mackenzie’s dreams and that whatever is causing the fear and bad dreams would go away. Let’s nip this in the butt before the kids have to share a room starting next week.
You know what that means?! We leave for Tampa in one week from today!
