A Game Changer

Just one more post about sleep. I can’t help it. See…I haven’t mentioned in the past three or so weeks because I didn’t want to jinx is but…I think Olivia’s hit some major milestone where she sleeps through the night!

And get this, when she wakes up, she doesn’t get out of bed to come find me. Sure, she might call out to me and ask me to fix her blankets but even this is happening maybe once a week instead of every single flipping night.

She hasn’t joined me in my bed in almost three weeks. It’s been, well, almost luxurious. I don’t know how else to describe sleeping for six to eight hours without waking, without an elbow or some toes poking me.

We could very well have a relapse, I’m not counting that out, but at this point, it feels like I can say I have two excellent sleepers.

Yes, they’re eight and twelve. Yes, it took us this long to get to this point but we’re there and it’s a lovely, lovely thing. I can honestly say that going to sleep at 10:00 each night and knowing that there is a great possibility that I will not be woken up by anyone other than perhaps my own bladder is a game changer.

Let the good times roll!
