It's been 2 hours. I've been in several times....more like 4-5 really. I don't know what else to do but hold, rock, support, and place her back in her crib.
When I softly open her door, her little fingers are folded tightly over the rails of her bed. She peeks over at me. A little hippity hop with each inch that I gain. Her cheeks are stained with with tears and her hair is sweaty and glued ever which way. She catches her breath only to begin another big inhale.
My girls are my lifeline. Instead of dreading the late night moments such as these, they become new members of my treasure collection. Knowing that we've made it through it all thus far, I know that there will be plenty of sunshine and rain...my intent is to look for the many of rainbows to come.
So what's one cloudy day (or night in this case.)
Off for round 4, 5, or is it 10?
