Last night i spend the night with the kids at my mom's house. I wasnt sure how Oakley would do, seeing as our last few times trying to get him to sleep in a play pen was horrible, and he wont sleep with me anymore... so i was quite concerned. But he put my fears to rest as i laid him down with no difficulty. In the morning, he lay so sweetly, completely covered with a quilt. Then every 10 mins or so he would lift it and look at me, stare for a minute, then put his arm back down. We did this for 90 mins or so.
I often go to my mom's with the kids when Thomas leaves, i find it makes it easier for them to say bye because it gives them something to look forward to. And i love the company and comfort of being around my mom.
