It Won't Be Like This For Long

Last night we read our bedtime book, sang our bedtime song and tucked the girls in for the evening.

We walked out, braced ourselves for the almost certain wails and waited. And waited. And waited.

No wails. WHAT?! No wails!?!

I waited a few more minutes and poked my head in. Sure enough, they were already asleep.

I looked at Scott. He looked at me. And we just smiled.

Fast forward about an hour, and they woke up simultaneously wailing.

And that's when I started to melt down. I was tired. I knew I had a long night ahead of me if they were waking up just an hour into bedtime.

The frustration was building after each time we thought Claire was back to sleep, she'd wail again.

But then I sat down at the computer and started reading a blog of a friend who posted this video.

Then I remembered what I had forgotten.

And I smiled thinking about how wonderful my sleepless life is.
