An answered prayer

Last night, after a very fun bathtime, I put Dahlia to bed. She requested we read "Horton" and so we did. Dang that's a long book. Anyway - she's been on a Horton kick lately. About 3/4 of the way through she fell asleep! Unusual because typically she will stay awake & try to weasel many many stories out of her Dad & I each night (she often falls asleep when we read before naptime). I laid her in her crib and that was that.

I did hear her cry out once in the middle of the night - but it literally lasted 3 seconds & she must've been asleep.

Then not a peep til about 7:30 this morning! It was awesome!

I didn't even wake myself coughing (had to get up a few times to pee, but what do you expect?). Aside from my sore throat that will not go away, I am feeling a MILLION times better today. Thank goodness!

It's AMAZING what a good night's sleep can do. Hmmm....speaking of Horton, I believe we have a little stuffed animal Horton around here somewhere that Holland doesn't play with.....maybe Dahlia would like him!

I'm glad you're on a better schedule. I hate, hate, hate not getting enough sleep.

And LOL about Horton - I'm always amazed at how long MOST Seuss books are. They seemed shorter as a kid?
