Sleeping Baby

My little girl is sleeping in her very own bedroom for the first time tonight. She is four years old. Some of you may be thinking, well it’s about time! some of you still are like me and transitioning.

The Sound Of Silence

Let's just say that this past week had many many sleep time frustrations. I spent more than one day chunking things out of Lil Man's room into the hall so he couldn't get into it at naptime. Then after the nap that didn't happen, I would have to put everything back into his room.Finally, enough was enough.
