{Night Terrors strike again}

Night Terrors

I know I should have expected this...but in the back of my mind I always hope they are gone forever! They usually occur when there is a big transition in Mason's life. And going back to school after 2 months off was just that.

Well, they're not gone...and they reared their ugly head last night. Right on queue approx 90 minutes after Mason first went to sleep. And then they happened every 2 or so hours for the rest of the night. Luckily they were mild enough that I could just pat his back and talk him calmly out of them. I slept with him all night so that I was at arms reach for when these happened. Sometimes he will kick, hit, twist, etc and I always fear he will get hurt. I was up most of the night because in between his terrors I would just pat his back, watch him and pray for him.

And I will continue to pray.

He will cover you with his feathers. He will shelter you with his wings. His faithful promises are your armor and protection. Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night, nor the arrow that flies in the day. Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness, nor the disaster that strikes at midday. Though a thousand fall at your side, though ten thousand are dying around you, these evils will not touch you. Psalm 91:4-8 NLT

And a quick update on School and the transition back...

No tears were shed today! No fits, less fussin' and a happier Mama and Mason. Praise the Lord. Nathan and I both had big talks with him yesterday and he told us over and over he would be better. That he would be a big boy and he would be happy and nice to Mama. And? He was. It took a lot of work to get him dressed and out the door, but was definitely better than Monday and Tuesday. He did tell him on the way to school that he didn't want to go, but it was just that. He did well when got there, no crying! I was so happy and so proud of him!!


  1. Poor baby! Praying hard for you guys. So Chris came home from bible study last night and read me that passage. He truly is our only safe harbor.
    I am so glad he did better this morning. Man those little stinkers just have a way of taking it all out of us don't they?

  5. Aww...poor little dude! Praying for a better nighttime!

  6. Oh no!!!!! That's so terrible! I'm so glad he's doing well with the translation! But I totally feel you mama my oldest has been struggling with night terrors on and off for a couple years. We switched things up a bit putting the girls beds in one room and that seemed to do the trick for now.

    I hope they end soon, it's no fun seeing your baby to through that.
