That Old Rachel 7

We always had trouble getting Rachel to bed...she was a night owl in her early years. Still would be, I guess, except that she has self-discipline and an 8:00 class. But we used to hear her talking to herself long after she should have been asleep. One night, when she was 2 and a couple of months, we lay in bed and listened to her as she said, "If I lie down, I fall asleep and if I sit up I don't. And if I look this way I see....a door! And if I look this way I see....a wall!"

She hated going to sleep at night and she hated getting up in the morning.

And she's home with us for the weekend, this weekend. She's having some room-mate issues and thought it good to be out of the way or a couple of days. We're going to go to Sugarloaf for a little while today but she has a lot of work to do, too.

I love overhearing what kids say when they talk to themselves.
