"There was never a child so lovely but his mother was glad to get him to sleep."-RW Emerson

I’ve been avoiding writing, because all I can think about is Ella’s crappy sleep issues, and really, if I am tired of thinking about it, I’m pretty sure no one is going to be  excited to read about it. Hi, waste 10 minutes of your life listening to me bitch about the same thing every parent ever has had to deal with. Somehow my pain is different though, ya’ll! Pity me!

So yeah, we are still alive. Tired, frustrated, biting holes in my cheeks to keep me from yelling, but alive. It IS gradually getting better, by five minute increments, so given this progress she should be asleep at naptime by the time she is 43. Awesome.

 Some links to distract you from my mundane whining.

We’re going to walk to Joann’s and see if I can find a Halloween costume to make for Ella.  Have I ever mentioned that I live 4 blocks from a Joann’s (And a children’s clothes resale shop? And two ice cream shops, a book store, a pet store, and 6 fast food places?) No? It’s not healthy (or good for my wallet.)

    Ugh, sleep issues. I used to talk about them but now I don’t bother. They always feel so intense and consuming while they are happening but then *poof* they can disappear….

    Hopefully your *poof* will come soon and hopefully I am not jinxing myself into another round…Felix is currently going to sleep (by himself without nursing or crying) while I write this…
