The girls spent the night at a friend's last night. There were five little girls running around, playing games, having fun.
When it was bedtime, Holly went up to their room and hopped on the blond twin's bed, just as she did every night. She curled up right before I patted her head and told her to go to sleep.
We heard her scratching on our door this morning and thought it must be time to take her outside. We thought we must have slept in. When we looked at the clock, we groaned. It was only 6:00 a.m.
Holly woke us up because she was lonely in their bedroom. She was tired of being alone. She wanted some attention, so she came to find us. On a day when we could have slept in just a little bit, Holly woke us up earlier than usual because she was lonely. No matter how much we like that Holly worships the girls, this morning we wished she was just a little more independent.
