You can tell by the questions the girls are asking that their world is big right now. Big is daunting, especially for Caden.
Most nights Delaney seems to fall asleep before she does. This is when she gets really anxious, she doesn’t like being the only one awake in their room. She used to try to come down to watch tv with me, but I decided that was a bad habit and we stopped doing it. Then she started turning on the lamp in their room. I would say at least three nights a week I come upstairs and the lamp is on.
The lamp works for her, but it isn’t ideal. We needed something that threw off more light than a nightlight, but less light than a lamp. Twinkle lights! Unfortunately, I didn’t have a string of plain twinkle lights, I only had icicle lights. We strung them around their shelves, but Delaney already has ideas of hanging them at the ceiling. We are still in the trial phase, so ceiling lights will have to wait until I decide if this is a permanent solution. (The lights get unplugged when I go to bed, so they’re only on for a few hours.)
