Goodbye monitor

Andy and I made the decision to turn the monitor off in the girls' room. Now, I don't hear them wake up, but I am fully confident that they would come get us or call loud enough if there is a problem.  Honestly, I think they've slept better since pulling the plug.  I know I have. Blessings.

One tired mama

I am happy to report that Betsy slept all night; however, Mollie woke up at 1ish calling for me because she had a bad dream. At least they don't wake each other up! On the way home this evening, Mollie said she was glad it was the weekend. I assured her that I was too. Hope it's a restful one for you and yours. Blessings.

The call out

Last night, Betsy called out from the bathroom at 1:30 a.m. At least it wasn't from her bed, a baby step. Here's to hoping for a full nights rest for the both of us. Blessings.

5 a.m. wake up

Well, I talked with Betsy before bed, reminded her of the rules, prayed with her and wished her sweet dreams. 2 a.m. came and went but at 5 she started calling for Mollie!  Thankfully, Mollie didn't wake up, but I went in to comfort her from a bad dream. After a potty break and a drink, Betsy went back to sleep for a couple more hours.  Maybe tonight we will be able to break the 5 a.m. wake up call as well for me and Mollie. Blessings.

Lately, Betsy has not been sleeping through the night. It is so exhausting! Even with reminders that she is allowed to go potty or get a drink after she's been asleep, she calls out for help. Repeatedly. Until a parent gets there.  I think it may stem from her sleepless nights while sick, and now she is used to waking at 2 and 5. I'm ready to break that habit. With more reminders and some prayers, we'll tackle this. Crossing my fingers that tonight is the night. Blessings.

Happy new year

So ready to be done with illnesses. It seems like we have been sick off and on since Thanksgiving.  Today we welcomed in 2015 with sick kids and adults to boot.  Prayers for all of you to have a happy and healthy new year! Blessings.
