Ready to celebrate with us?
Not just because it’s Friday (although sometimes that is enough reason to celebrate)…
No, today we are celebrating because my son has slept in his own bed, all night long, for 7 nights in a row.
People, this is cause for a celebration! He has NEVER, EVER, EVER done that in all of his 3 years and 4 months. Once, ONCE, he slept in his own room all night for 5 nights in a row. Usually it is 2 nights, and then the next he is stumbling into our room at 2 a.m.
Yes, we tried the put him back in the room method, over and over and over… It didn’t work for us. Instead of more nights where no one got any sleep, we set up a spot for him next to our bed.
Earlier this week I realized it had been 3 nights in a row that he had stayed in bed. I don’t know why, but I found myself telling him that if he slept in his own bed for 7 nights we’d have a party.
So it’s a party we’re having, complete with decorated paper table-cloth, balloons, party hats, and cupcakes!
Yes, around here everyone is celebrating, even the dog!
And my little Monkey is learning that success is sweet….
…it’s been sweet for Mommy, too, getting to sleep all those nights uninterrupted!
So, come on, grab a cupcake, put on your party hat, and do a little victory dance with me!
Have a great weekend, everyone!

Hurray, hurray! I’m so happy for you, and I hope he keeps it up!
Big sister and him both love the Pajanimals video, by the way.

That’s great! I wasn’t sure if they would like it, but it looked cute!
That’s so great! Good for him! 🙂
Thanks — I’m a proud mommy right now!
Thanks! 🙂 He actually has been sleep walking the past 2 nights. So we’ll see how the rest of the week goes.
Yippee!!! That is reason to celebrate and with 7 nights of blissful sleep you finally had the energy for some real celebrating!! 🙂
Yes, it was a great run while we had it…. I think I jinxed us when I wrote that post. He’s been sleep walking actually the past couple nights.
