The Muffin- (looking at the calendar) Wow, Sharley's birthday is really soon.
The Mommy- We need to get her a present. What do you think she would like to have?
The Muffin- Maybe a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
The Mommy- Do you think she would like that?
The Muffin- Yeah...or maybe some new play dough. She really likes play dough!
I know exactly where she gets her sense for buying gifts from...her Daddy.
In other news...
Baby Ellie and I slept much better last night. I did lots of research on sleep stuff yesterday and last night. I'm doing a combination of sleep training and night weaning, but not using the crying it out method. I sort of Ferberized The Muffin at seven months old and that helped tremendously...at least for a while. In the end, we'll do what works best for us. And by us, I mean me and Baby Ellie. There's really not anyone else that's involved in this. I can assure you that Ellie will not go without food when she needs it, but she needs sleep too. She slept later and seemed happier today. I'm going to pray that tonight goes well too.
