But I am tired. So last night I put my foot down. I said, "Sam, you cannot come into our room tonight. Mommy is so tired and you need to figure out how to deal with alligators on your own." I suggested setting up a guard of stuffed animals near the door so they wouldn't come in, a guard on his bed so they could only stay on the floor, etc. Dave suggested a "No Alligators" sign and Sam was all over that one. So he and Dave made the above sign. Sam added the smiley face so the alligators knew it was a happy thing that they weren't allowed.
So this morning we woke up and Sam was sleeping in the hallway outside our door. He said, "The alligators stayed out but I just wanted to be not in my bed." sigh. We didn't get woken up in the night but I'm not sure our problem is solved.
Oh, and did I mention that Rachel woke up crying at 1am this morning so we didn't get to sleep through anyways? If only we could figure out what is visiting her room at night and disturbing
