Rise and Shine!

I can't go to bed,
I'm not even sleepy.

I can't go to sleep,
everything is creepy.

What was that thunk?
Did you hear it?

I can't see it,
but I fear it.

*Deep breath in...*
I try to think of only good thoughts.

puppy licks...warm sunshine...Mom and Dad hugs...the smell of pine...

Deep breath out...*
I try to relax my tummy knots.

"Rise and shine, my little sunshine!"

I can't wake up,
I'm still so sleepy.

I love my room,
nothing is creepy.


  1. I wish I would have had this yesterday with my granddaughter who, at the last resort, often says she needs me to stay because the bedroom is scary. This is a new thing for her, & we think she's nearly ready to give up the naps! You've described it exactly, Bridget!

    1. Oh, your granddaughter sounds precious, Linda! Giving up naps is a milestone for little ones (and their adults). =)

    1. I think we share a lot of the same experiences, Liz! Love that connection. Happy New Year! =)
