After our annual bedtime books (the same exact ones that are in the room each year,) we took a chance and allowed the freshly matured four year olds to attempt to sleep all night in the same big bed... along with their twenty four furry friends.
Addie promised "not to talk Ella's ear off!"
We practiced rolling over and going to sleep!
Ella seemed unsure of Addie's sincerity of really keeping her mouth shut but decided to give her BFF a shot.
AND.... ten hours later, we had SUCCESS!!!!!
