Grandma, I do not know how to fall asleep

That what she (4.5) told me yesterday night. I noticed it long ago,  that children, unlike us adults, do not close their eyes before sleeping. They are lying in bed with their eyes open until they fall asleep.
It was the first time after 60 days that each of them (2.5, 4.5, 5.5) went to sleep in his own bed, not in the one big bed in the sheltered room.
I had to stay with them until midnight . I knew that there is not a chance that  I can take them to the sheltered room in 45 minutes. It is quiet now but I am still watching TV in case those orange stripes of the sirens will appear again
(Something is wrong with the photos here. I hope I can fix it later. Ican not choose the photo I wanted.).


  1. I'd love to come round to help with your photos, but I'm too far away.

  2. Thank you ;) I think i solved the problem.And thank you for commenting here. I started to worry becouse suddenly after the silence here my blog also remain very silent.

  3. Just home from a week away.
    I had never noticed children don't close their eyes until they sleep! I guess I simply closed the bedroom door and hoped they would fall asleep.
    The heading for your blog reminded me about my grand daughter when she was about 10. We were in the car and I asked her what she thought [about something I forget what]. After a long silence she replied, "Nana, I don't think I think!" Needless to say she is not allowed to forget that remark.

  4. Welcome back Shirley!
    it is funny:) hope you have a nice vacation. It is almost spring in your part of the world.
