I love how the little things in life make it all worth it. A great nights sleep. A fabulous cup of coffee. Kids that wake up by themselves on a school day with plenty of time to get ready. It's the little things like that which make my days amazing.
Last night, I was so exhausted from being woken up in the middle of the night over the last week that I went to bed at 9 p.m. Now I know most of you are thinking that isn't early but I generally won't begin to think about sleep until roughly 11:30 p.m. so it was really early for me. I kissed my husband on the head, posted reminder notes about taking Hobbit to the potty before he came to bed and fell fast asleep. The best part is, I slept all night. No little fingers poking me to tell me that they had a bellyache!
We elevated the head of her bed with pillows and blanket rolled up to roughly 30 degrees, which looks a lot steeper than you imagine. She slept beautifully. I was worried she would flip out of it because she sleeps on the edge of the bed but she stayed in. Hobbit got such a great nights sleep that she woke up on her own in a fabulous mood!
It's amazing how a simple thing like uninterrupted sleep can color everything rosy! So now I am off to go pack lunch for my silly little ballerina, find a 'doable' weight-loss and exercise program for me, clown around a bit and enjoy my fabulous day... who knows, just might dance around for the sheer joy of it!
