I don't know if it was my child picking up on my cues or if it was my picking up of my daughter's cues but my daughter slept from 8pm-5:45am straight through with one 5 minute wake up. The best part was the night's sleep was a very restful peaceful sleep.
I know. I know.
Tonight will be a bear. Any parent of a toddler will tell you consecutive nights of this are about as common as winning the lottery.
Still, it was what I needed to pump up my parenting mojo. Well that and a restful night's sleep for myself and DH as well.
