One of the roles that has emerged for me in 2007 is to put these two energetic younglings to sleep. It’s a wonderful feeling when Elysia and Gareth want me to stay with them until they fall asleep. The whole process might take up to one hour if they are still charged up. 🙂 I tried some slow breathing exercise a while ago, as they were drifting off to sleep. A little centering, then I managed to delete SMS messages on my mobile. I’m sure I’ll work out what I can do after I finish telling them stories of lizards and rats, and also singing John 3:16 in Chinese (a lullaby my mom sang to me when I was a kid). Earlier it was nice to have Ewan sleep on my chest … it felt good.
