Dear Billy Dean,

Thank you so much for your beautiful song, "Let Them Be Little". My favorite part is "...let them smile, let them giggle, let them sleep in the middle...most of all let them be little". It was a great reminder to let Reese be little. And it made it easier to allow her to sleep in our bed occasionally. I know she won't want to do that forever so I am trying to snuggle with her when I can. However, do you think you could change the words to "...let them sleep in the middle once or twice a week" because she is taking it to the extreme. She has slept in our bed the last two nights!! When she wakes up in the middle of the night all we hear is her saying "Reese. Mommy Daddy's bed"...over and over and over. She won't take no for an answer. So she gets in bed with us, flips and flops, kicks and pokes all night. When we know she is good and asleep (because I have been awake for the two hours that she has been in my bed) I try to pick her up and move her back to her bed. Then her eyes pop wide open and she cries, "No mommy. Reese sleep Mommy Daddy's bed". And the cycle starts all over again. So, again, thank you and please change the words.



P.S. If you do change the words of the song, I should get royalties...and I will use that money to buy a bigger bed for all of us to sleep in...'cause I don't think she is going anywhere any time soon.

So cute!! I don't think Cayden would want to sleep in our bed even though I would like for him to sometimes :) Be thankful for the cuddling!! I definitely enjoyed writing the blog yesterday. I hope that I can keep it up!
