Sleep is Priceless

I am now a week and a half into sleep training and we had that golden night, that one magical night every parent with non sleeping children craves, a full nights sleep.

Charlie aka Dennis, went to bed at 5:45pm and Jake aka Damien at 6pm. Neither cried or protested and slept through until... Wait for it... 8:15am.

I nearly fell over when we went downstairs and I saw the time. I felt amazing and both boys were happy and full of energy.

It would of have to happen on a preschool day, and I did have to run around like a headless chicken to get all three of us ready. Or at least semi presentable.

I've not once in three years had to set an alarm clock. If the boys slept until 6am that was considered a lie in.

The day flew by, I guess when you get up at 5am everyday by around 9am you've already done four hours and feel like it's lunch time.

The journey has been hard, but not as hard as the constant sleep deprived nights.

I'll keep you posted.
