Slumber Parties and Kneecaps

Last night Qade had a rough time.  That happens every now and then and I haven’t quite figured out what the ‘deal’ is other than the fact that I have bad nights sometimes too.  Most of the time if he wakes up screaming I’ll put him back to bed and see how that goes.  It didn’t go well last night.  If he wakes up more than once screaming at the top of his lungs I figure that something is “wrong.”  So last night Bubba and Mommy camped out in the spare room together again.  It’s easier than taking him to our room, because 2 in the bed is much easier than 3 in the bed. 🙂  I have to admit though, in our “slumber” party, Qade got more slumber than mommy. 🙂  I don’t mind it.  It’s just one way that he needs me, and because I know something is bothering him, tooth pain, bad dream, or just can’t sleep, and I know he can’t tell me about it, I want him to know that I’m still there for him when he needs me.  An occasional night’s sleep is not too much to give to my sweet boy.

Okay, so the kneecap thing.  I happened to notice recently that I’ve been getting little blue bruises on my knees!  I don’t recall smacking them on anything so I have to contribute it to crawling around on the floor when I’m playing with Qade.  Yep, I now understand why God doesn’t let babies get their kneecaps till they are of walking age.  It hurts to crawl on kneecaps!!  I was feeling Qade’s chubby legs the other day, and thinking of how all that padding is there for a reason.  Seems like a small thing, but It’s fun to see the “purpose” behind the way God has orchestrated our lives. There is NOTHING He didn’t think of and plan for.  It helps me to remember that if God is concerned about such things as baby kneecaps that I can know for sure he’s got the big stuff under control too! 🙂

Hope you all are having a very fun weekend!
