We have now made it full circle. I was truly hoping by this time she would be sleeping through the night and sleeping well at naps and that I would magically have a well-rested child. Sadly, no one prepared me for sleep training to wreck her naps and for her to become more needy and clingy. I don’t blame her though – if I was her age and felt my mom was abandoning me, I would hold on for dear life!
Tonight also marks the half way point. Just one more week of this and then it will be time for me to make a decision on whether I want to keep trying this or if I want to just quit. I’m praying we’ll get over this hump this weekend. I’m praying she will begin to sleep well for both naps and nighttime. I’m praying she will stop crying the moment I pick her up to go upstairs – that moment she realizes what’s in store for her in the next half hour. I’m praying.
And again, I’m tired. So off to bed I go.
P.S. I know I’ve lost a few readers with this thread series, but I’ve needed an outlet to get my frustrations. Thank you to all who are still subscribed for hanging in there with me.
