Tonight, We All Sleep Together
I’m going to use this as a double post because its just crazy.
The last 4-5 days have been much warmer than usual. It used to be very nice and cool at night so we never had any problems with temperatures. But because the sun is so hot on the apartment and it doesn’t set until after 9pm, we have been having challenges with V’s sleep.
Her room is on the west side and we actually kept her up till 8:45pm the other night because it was just too hot to sleep. There is no air movement at all and she gets all sweaty. Not good.
Enter The Other Room – it used to be where the girls slept bug I offered it to the boys since it helped Z sleep better. He used to waked up at night in the purple room. The Buddha room is where we all are currently.
It’s so cute to see the kids in one bed. Throughout this whole trip so far, we have had many challenges concerning the topic of sleep. So tonight we decided to all sleep in one bed. How do you do that with a queen sized bed? Easy – you sleep lengthwise so there is more space. Luckily we are not that much taller than the width of the bed so our legs will just be hanging over a little.
Another issue is the air movement. It is breezy out but the air doesn’t quite find its way into our room. So we had to find a solution without leaving the door too wide and letting too much light into the room. (I have to say, it is very nice to have the kids in bed with us.). Between the bathroom, living room and bedroom door, we had to wedge them with a small piece of knotted cloth (which is actually M’s lower bottom of his PJs that he cut off since it’s too hot to have long pjs) to prevent them from slamming.
So there, that has been the last hour or so of our life here in Amsterdam. Good night.
