Last night was not a normal evening. I could tell both kids were tired when I picked them up. They had been outside much of the afternoon. Fresh air is good!
Charlie got fussy after dinner and he was apparently tired enough that he didn’t even mind me cutting his bath short. I believe he was in bed by 6:15.
At 6:30, Chad and I were sitting in the living room playing Words with Friends on our phones. (Great game, send me a note if you want to play) I decided Maria was being awfully quiet in her room. Poor girl was sound asleep on her bed. Dirty feet and face, unbrushed teeth and all. We let her sleep. She woke up around 10:30 for a snack and to put on her pajamas but wanted to go straight back to bed after that.
Last night was also Night #2 of crying it out. (CIO). No idea there was an acronym for this but there is. It’s a mom-thing.
Charlie work up twice 12:40 and 1:30. Both times I “re-Nuk”ed. The first time he cried for less than 5 minutes. The second before I even shut his door. And again he was fast asleep when I left this morning.
Progress! We have progress! Glad he is catching on so quickly! My smart kid!! Here’s to night #3 and to embracing the sleeping process a little more!
