patience kindness and health

The Soup Family Resolutions have been "published", now let's see what happens.
So far we're off to a bit of a "rocky" start. The diva has decided she's unable to fall asleep on her own and if she wakes up in the middle of the night (once every hour!) she can NOT be alone.
This has led to screaming for hours on end as we try different tactics, all of which are resulting in mommy & daddy getting NO sleep!
I was recommended a book to try and while I haven't read all of it (the no-cry sleep solution if you want to know) and one of the solutions that I've read about so far include having siblings sleep together in the same room. Baby bear has been wanting to sleep with the diva for months, well maybe years, so last night he got his wish.
Last night marked the first time in a handful of attempts that the two of them slept in the same room successfully at our house. I, of course, have to point out that they've been sleeping in the same room at Grandma & Grandad's since the diva was 6 months old, but somehow it's never translated well back at home.
Hopefully it gets better and better.
Hopefully we all remember our resolutions.
We've needed so much patience lately it's been nearly impossible to keep it going.
but I think we can
until next time...
patience, kindness and health to you all and happy 2008
