Good News

I love reading about good news! I've read a couple of blogs lately about suprise good news and it's so fun to read about! I don't have any suprise good news or really any good news at all, but what about you!? What good news do you have?!

Calling ALL Parents....

I need help. Actually Naia and I need your help. She can't sleep. She won't sleep. Therefore I don't get to sleep. I don't know what to do. She's 6 years old. She cries, screams, moans, for me ALL night long. She cries b/c she can't get to sleep even though she's been asleep for a few hours. Then she won't go back to sleep in her bed. Last night Brent and I were up with her about 30 minutes before I caved in and put her on the couch with me. I just held her close so she'd quit crying and actually go back to sleep. She did after about an hour. I haven't had a full night of sleep in over a month. Between her and Paxton (who's finally sleeping in his own bed, but wakes up a couple of times a night) the nights are VERY long here. I need prayers. I covet your prayers. I also covet an ideas that would help us! Let me tell you a few things I've tried. Spanking...never works for her! Sticker chart. She didn't really care. We've tried taking away privileges. It doesn't effect her at all. I have made her a pallet in my floor. She does sleep there but not very well. She wakes up with dark circles under eyes. I know she's so tired. I'm so tired. School starts back next week and I'm worried that this will effect her there as well. Nothing catastrophic has happened to her. She's not been away from me much at all this summer. We did watch Old Yeller and this started the night of that. I don't know if it's just habit now or what....

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. We are pretty routine people, so we have a decent summer bedtime routine.
