Well, we have had so many issues with Gia and her sleep issues that I have spent many hours wondering JUST what to do. So much so, that I have PLEADED with sleep itself to just let me know what I can do. See this.
Well tonight, my fine husband MAY have found the solution. We had bought Gia some of those Glow Sticks for Halloween, but never got around to using them. Ralph and Miss Thing went on a date while I cleaned (yes, you read that right...they had a date and I cleaned house. And yet, I somehow feel like I was the one given the big exciting day....that is an entire other story) and when they got home, Ralph gave her the Glow Stick.
We had our normal bed time routine. Bath, books, cuggles. Then the NORMAL routine is then followed by ridiculous amounts of screaming beyond belief. Well, tonight there was none of that. There was some sweet whispering to Ghloe (Gia's beloved Glo Worm) and lots of book reading to Elmo. When we went in to see how the room was left in tact, this is what we found.....Sleeping soundly with the Glo Stick close by. Now, the question is....is an extra thirty bucks a month worth good sleep? Right now, I am thinking the answer is yes!!!!!!
