In the middle of nap time today, I heard stomping from above signifying a bathroom trip from my daughter. I went up to check on her and caught her running back to her room and shutting the door as if trying to hide from me. Upon entering her room and questioning her, it was discovered that she had indeed gone to the bathroom, but had not washed her hands. So back to the sink we went. An interesting conversation ensued--something about how she was crying a lot for Jesus because Jesus wasn't in her house, that she was scared and said a prayer and Jesus didn't come. This is the gist of what I understood from her ramblings, which sounded a little disoriented like she was half-asleep. Perhaps it was a dream she had?
She was escorted back to her room, all her babies cleared from her bed since she had also related to me a story about her pink baby telling her how she wanted to fly and needed a magic wand, suspiciously suggesting that my child had been playing with her babies instead of napping. So we removed the temptation on the grounds that the babies needed to sleep in their own bed with the only exception being the pink baby (to avoid a complete breakdown I had to give somewhere). I stayed upstairs to take care of some things for my calling and just to make sure she really did go to sleep instead of play. All has been quiet for some time. Then out of the blue I hear her yelling out, "Jesus! Jesus!" fairly loudly. I peeked in her room only to ask her to be quiet so as not to wake up her brother, but I am very interested to hear the story behind this outburst. What could possibly be going through that child's brain? She was definitely awake, not dreaming.
