Last Thursday, Lily slept her first night in the dark. She didn’t mean to though.
You see, we have a night light that we turn on whenever she goes to bed. However, Dad forgot to turn it on. It wasn’t until she was fast asleep, and we were going to bed ourselves, that we noticed. It was too late then and just let her be.
Lily didn’t notice she was sleeping in the dark and didn’t care one bit.
Come to find out, the nightlight is more for us than for her right now. When we peek into her room, we can’t see her if the nightlight is off. Oops.
I haven’t forgotten the night light since then but may have to continue ‘forgetting’ every once in a while so she gets use to sleeping in the dark.
