I sat down with the intention of being witty. But seriously. I haven't slept in two days, so give a girl a break.
Phoebe's cold is really no big deal, until nighttime. Which is when she can't sleep. And when Phoebe can't sleep, neither can Mommy or Daddy. And I'm all for sleep training the no-nonsense way, but not during a time of illness. So Mommy spent a few hours in the chair, Daddy did a great job keeping us all from losing our minds, and Phoebe did finally sleep a few blissful hours.
Leading up to this night of little sleep was a day of little sleep and even less energy. At 5:15, Phoebe was falling apart, ready for bed, ready for... anything. Her nose and mouth were dripping copious amounts of liquid, and I was trying to get dinner on the table. So what do we do? We bust out the DVDs.
You can tell that Phoebe watches very little television.
She sat, stunned and still, for thirty minutes. Thank heavens it was a DVD of Bible songs and not cable! Friends, I would highly recommend the Five Little Ladybugs DVD. My little ladybug absolutely loved it.
And yes. That is my Christmas tree in the background. That was on the list, but... it'll come down before Valentine's Day I'm sure.
