Oh dear. So the chart worked for two days. I feel beaten down. I am worn out. I actually cried last night when my neighbor called "just to check in" and I had to say, at 8:45 p.m., Sofia still hadn't gone to bed. Luckily, Jen came to the rescue, and popped over to read Sofia some stories and helped to get her to sleep. It was such a nice break. I sat on the couch and booked our plane tickets for Thanksgiving for a quick, last minute visit to Minnesota and picked up the house.
I was so embarrassed that I couldn't get my own child to sleep. Jen was gracious and supportive and stayed for a glass of wine. It was nice to have another adult in the house.
Sofia woke up later that night around 11:30 and then was up from 2:30-4 a.m. Poor thing. She just is in a funky place for some reason. Work has been crazy the last few days and we have our first school dance tomorrow night. My Give-o-Meter is running on empty and it is definitely time for some refreshing. I am very much looking forward to the long Thanksgiving weekend to spend with some major cuddling and family time.
I am so thankful that I have such a wonderful friend and listener in Chris. Despite his distance from Sofia and I, he has done nothing but be as supportive as he possibly can. We love him!
The agenda for tonight: Lots of Momma and Sofia hugs, bath time, story time, and bed time....for both of us. :)
