Since I still cant upload pictures from my camera, let's discuss a topic dear to a mother's heart: SLEEP. Is it normal that my 22 month old is such a bad sleeper? Or is he even a bad sleeper or just a normal kid whose parents have unreachable expectations? I think the trend is that he'll sleep through the night, 11+ hours, for about 2 weeks and then something, anything will mess him up again. If he doesn't get a long enough nap, if we go out of town, if he's sick, if it's a full moon... He's ruined and we have to start from scratch. He'll wake up in the middle of the night and be awake for 3+ hours. He doesn't want to be held, doesn't want to lay by us; he just wants someone to sit next to his crib and hold his hand for hours on end until he finally falls asleep. Guess what my friend? WE DONT WANT TO DO THAT! I'm all for letting him cry it out if he's not sick and we dont have company who have to listen to him scream.
My grandparents are staying with us this week
+ Cohen has a cough
= last night was no good.
Who has the magic answer? I'm willing to sell my soul...
