Just A Little Light

We're suddenly entering the "I'm scared of the dark" phase with Grayson. Of course... it could be that he says he is scared because he knows that it hurts my heart to hear him say that.

Lately, he has been telling me that he is scared as soon as we turn out the lights in his room. I've been leaving his bedroom door cracked, but I'm afraid that the downstairs TV might be making it difficult for him to fall asleep.

A few days ago, Grayson and I picked up a $9 night-light at Lowe's. He loves it. Every single night he wants to see his "fishies". He just needs a little light and he feels comfortable enough to fall right to sleep.

I was thinking about how being a school teacher is similar. I love that we always have a light at the end of the tunnel. Right now I know that I can make it these next two weeks because I have MLK day coming up in the near future!

Anyway... here is Grayster's light. It shines on the wall beside his crib and he absolutely loves it. :)

so true! One reason it is easy to go back is because there is a light to look forward to! :) Have a good first day back!

I totally checked my calendar for when that day was coming up too. :)
