Kyler loves babysitters, but we've never had one put him to bed before, so I was a little worried. In the middle of the party I got a text from our babysitter that said something like this:
" Kyler is looking for his green blanket and won't go to bed without it. Do you know where it is?"
Then I panicked-I knew exactly where it was.
*In his preschool classroom that was locked up for the weekend*
Kyler has never slept a night in his life without his green blanket! He was really upset, but somehow she magically managed to get him to sleep by the time we got home! I love babysitters!!
However, Kyler did wake up in the middle of the night crying for his green blanket FIVE times on Friday night (of course earlier that day I was just bragging to my friends about what a good sleeper Kyler has always been...apparently not so much when you take away his favorite blanket!). Yesterday I went through a box of Kyler's old baby things in search of a replacement blanket and found this blue one he used when he was a newborn. The fabric feels similar to his beloved green blanket, and blue is his favorite color, so I hoped it would work as a temporary replacement.
Kyler was so excited to see his old blue blanket, even though it is much too small for him.
He gratefully accepted it as a temporary replacement, and napped soundly without crying at all :)
Saturday night he slept great with the replacement blanket. Hallelujah! Before bed he informed me that: "Green key key (that's what he calls his blanket) at pweeschool an go pweeschool Monday!" I love how much he is talking/understanding these days...though I highly doubt he knows when Monday is.
