This is a totally true story.
Several nights ago, Alanna woke up in the middle of the night crying. This happens sometimes and she usually goes back to sleep on her own.
I woke up and laid there waiting to see if she went back to sleep. Her cries became louder and louder and she started yelling "Mama! Mama!"
I knew it was time to go in there.
When I got in her room, she was standing and pointing at something. I asked her what was wrong and she said "Mama....hat!" Excuse me?!? I asked her what she wanted again and she said "hat!" and put her hand on the top of her head. She continued to say "hat" over and over.
I told her it was time to go to sleep and laid her back down. She immediately stood up, started crying, and saying "hat! hat! hat!"
I got her Old Navy hat and put it on her head and kissed her goodnight. She stopped crying, laid down, and fell right back asleep!!!
So from 2:00 in the morning until 8:30, my child slept with a hat on.
Today I am thankful for my Mom's Club. We had a fun time today!
