Thankful Thursday

This week I am thankful for:

1.  AN AWESOME BEDTIME FOR OUR LITTLE ONE. Dare I say it? I just did.  After months of feeling like we were moving towards "normalcy" at a snail's pace and struggling SO much with knowing what the variables were in the mathematical equation that is the "magic sleep button"...something happened (prayer? sense of safety? attachment?) and now we can do the whole bath, books, pray/cuddle, sing, and SHUT THE DOOR thing and our Little One GOES TO SLEEP.  It's been three nights of this.  Our last hurdle is the wake-up time.  We'd like to sleep in past 5 am but one thing at a time!


Yes, totally "cheating' on my Thankful Thursday.  I know you're never supposed to say "I'm so busy" but, well, I am.  Right now I'm working full time with wedding photography, parenting 4 kids, doing my 53 hours of foster parent training two evenings a week, subbing once a week, meetings 3-4 times a week, racking up some serious km's driving, etc.  Know your limits, stay within it.  I'll be normal amount of busy that comes with 4 kids in about 3 weeks and I can't wait!  My plan is to run and eat healthy--I've been indulging in a few too many treats.

What is one thing you are thankful for this week?

    1. Sweet, sweet sleep. I'm getting old, the lack of sleep is getting so much harder on me (and Gary!)

  2. There's nothing better than a good bed time routine and a child falling asleep on their own! It makes life so much easier and you get more down time after the kids are in bed. Good work!

  3. Love it! And I think that's worth 1-10 :)

  4. haha, I LOVE this list! I'm totally going to cheat and steal it for mine too! It's been a busy month!

    I am so happy that you are getting more sleep and so is LO. Sleep is such a blessing! And a great thing to be thankful for! :)
