Simple Monday – Because sometimes it just works

I don’t know why this happens but I’ve noticed that just when you think you’re at your absolute limit, milliseconds from breaking, that thing you’ve been waiting, working and striving for with the kids just happens.

Baby Good slept!  All night! It didn’t happen again, but it was enough and it has been better since.

And you know what else?  I reheated pasta from the freezer for dinner the other night and Miss Two ate it!  Two bowls in fact.  And better yet, she sat at the table in her own chair for the entire meal and Mr Good and I had a conversation over said meal.

That’s it, the cycle starts again, but as least there was a break and I appreciate that.

    Good for you. Sometimes it doesn’t take much at all but it all counts and 1 good nights sleep can do wonders.

    Great news and im sure(well i hope) just the new begining of baby goods night-time pattern.
    To relax and share a meal when parents is truly a simple joy.

    That’s great news! Just that little break will fuel the motivation and refresh you for the next stage of the climb – fantastic! Made me smile that the little Misses Good were being Good 🙂

    Thanks for all the nice replies, it’s amazing what a little extra sleep does for ones outlook. I would love to say that the eating and sleeping gods are still smiling down on us, but it was a one time deal on both fronts. Though there are definite signs of improvement in both areas.

    And yes Greenie it is very good when the Misses Goods are being good!

    Liz, not sure mine are up to the peer training just yet. Though your five year old could come out to dinner with us next time and show Miss Two how it’s done.
