This is what my girl does. She goes to bed around 8:30. I mean we are leaving her room around that time. We have read to her, prayed with her, etc.
Well, tonight I go upstairs after a good hour or so of her being in bed and she is on her knees with her hands up on her wall. I don't know what she was doing. It was something with the pictures on her wall. She sees me and what does she say?
"I can't get to sleep."
Um, yeah, most of us can't go to sleep in that position! Too funny. Usually she will read for an hour or so, sitting up in bed, and will then say she can't sleep seconds after setting her book down. I don't know if she will ever learn that you don't just fall asleep like a light switch turning off.
