The Nights Are Long, But The Years Are Short

EDB58E9D-9BEB-4B21-9941-4236548591B7.jpegTonight is especially rough as my little one is having a hard time falling asleep. I’ve moved her to her toddler bed and she’s been doing so well. I sit with her till she falls asleep and then I go to bed. But tonight is a long drawn out camp out.

In these situations, I try to think of the positives. I remember to cherish these times. To be firm in discipline but also loving and empathetic. It’s so frustrating to wait and wait. Get up and wake her up as I’m leaving her room. So then I have to sit back down again and wait and wait. I started trying to let her know that I’m going to mommy’s bed today. And that she can fall asleep on her own. It seemed to work today after some coaxing and a talk through. But I think it will be a process.

So in these moments I try to cherish the time I get to be with her.

I keep remembering a phrase I read once, “the nights are long but the years are short.”
