Ready to celebrate with us?
Not just because it’s Friday (although sometimes that is enough reason to celebrate)…
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!
…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!
