Bed shopping

Reagan is giving us a little grief in the sleep department. She's sleeping at night (and I am beyond thankful for that) but she's been difficult to get to sleep and then she wakes up crying each morning. Last night when I laid her down she was completely asleep, as soon as her head hit the pillow, she sprang awake like she was startled and then laid there in bed with her arms straightened up into the air. Eventually she settled down and fell asleep. Tonight she's doing a similar thing. She's exhausted but she's been doing this crazy wild eyed thing where she's got super human strength and you can't even hold her still. We had a busy day today...so maybe she's just over tired. Her teacher came this morning and then we were off to Ikea. It was beyond crowded (bad idea with my immune compromised child)...I guess lots of people were already off for the holiday weekend. We just did our best to avoid the people, looked at what we needed to see and left. We had been thinking about getting Reagan a daybed and they had a good one, but as it turns out it's off white and will seriously clash with her other bedroom furniture. So from there we went to Rooms To Go and the Roomstore. We found comparable beds at each and I think we finally decided on one. Haven't bought it yet, but maybe this weekend. Decisions decisions. Maybe she'll sleep better in her new bigger bed. I'm beyond tired and Reagan is too...she's been yawning nonstop since I put her in her bed. But she's a turkey and so far no sleep. Here's to a good night's sleep and a restful weekend.
