A Hint about Sleep (or lack thereof!)

I have been holding back with respect to sleep issues since graduating to the big bed.  As a summation of what is to come;  there are good nights and not so good nights ... there are even BAD nights!  I will fill you in on the saga eventually, but I couldn't help sharing last night's 'statement'.  
Cadence went to her bed at about 9ish.  She chose a video over a story, which we let her do once or twice a week.  Sean was going to be late due to graduation and I had a million things to do to get ready for a staff party tomorrow so ... I was happy to let her choose a video ... assuming she'd be asleep in 30 minutes or so .... WRONG!!!!!!  At 10:00 she was still finding 'reasons' to be up and out of bed.  Sean got home shortly thereafter and laid with her for a bit and then left her to drift off.  That did not happen.  Best line thus far (at about 10:30 pm) ... "Mommy, Daddy's not spending time with me!" 
She is just toooooo much!  If she wasn't so darn cute and funny .... I'd throttle her (whatever that means ... but I know it's not good!).  More info to come on Cadence and sleep soon ... 'cause I know you are just dying to hear ALL about it!

Well, you have certainly peeked my interest 'cause we are all about sleep and the lack thereof. I tried something new tonight and am holding my breath to see if it works. If it does, after a week, I will be shouting it from the rooftops!!!

On a more serious note, we really have had some major struggles with sleep issues. I have read books and countless articles, I have been to a sleep specialist, I have tried basically everything I could think of to get Olivia to sleep or back to sleep, so I know how much of a struggle it can be.
