I’m logged into my blog, all set to write an
awesome kick ass post, but suddenly I’m struck by writers block. I just don’t know what to write. Should I write about work? Nah – too boring. We all sit at cubicles all day, so why would I bore you with that stuff? Should I write about softball? In brief I played 6 games in 6 days. Some we won, some we lost. I now feel like I’m 80 yrs old. Should I write about the kiddos? Sierra’s better, Brooke is…..
SLEEPING THROUGH THE NIGHT!!
Yes! yes! You read that right! Brooke is sleeping through the night! Yippeeee! So how did we do it? I must admit I can take absolutely no credit for it. Rob did it.
Rob put her in her crib (while I was playing softball) and walked out of the room leaving her there wailing. 9 min later she was asleep. She woke up twice that night, and I attended to her as usual.
Same thing – only he took the monitor and did the night time parenting. He let her cry for 5 min, then went in to her. She took one look at him and flopped down in her bed. He patted her back and tucked her back in. She was up twice that night.
I nursed her at bed time, then put her in her bed awake. She protest cried, but settled quickly and fell asleep on her own. She woke up once. Rob let her cry and did her night time parenting.
Same as Saturday, only she slept through the night.
I had softball so Rob put her to bed. She woke up once in the night.
I put her to bed, Rob did her night-time parenting. She woke up, but didn’t require anyone to help her fall asleep.
So there ya have it folks – 13 months of waking up 2, 3 or sometimes even 4 times a night to nurse, and now I don’t have to do it anymore! Yay! So what am I going to do with all my new found energy now that the kid is FINALLY sleeping? Blog? Clean? Workout? Run? I dunno yet – right now I’m just trying to recover form playing 6 ball games in 6 days…
