For some reason this past week Lydia has had a special attachment to "these" two pennies. Every night before she has gone to sleep she has had to make sure they are tucked nicely under her pillow. If she wakes up in the middle of the night and can't put her hands on them, down the stairs she comes! "Mama, I can't find my pennies," she mumbles through tears. Yes, you read that right...tears! So, up the stairs we stumble to find the pennies (or replace them, if necessary!) Once they are back under her pillow, my little 3-yr old sleepyhead crawls back in bed and drifts back into dreamland. It beats all I've ever seen, but I wouldn't trade these days for anything!
Some kiddos have a special blanket or a soft stuffed animal that they need to sleep. For this little girl it is all of the above PLUS two, lucky pennies!!!
